About the Tour

We will meet at the Grand-Place, with our guide, to introduce ourselves into the fabulous world of Christmas and in December the city of Brussels has a unique atmosphere that immerses us in the world of Christmas.

We will also discover the legend of San Nikolas and his relationship with Coca-Cola. Keep in mind that it is in Brussels, where the largest Christmas market in Belgium takes place, they; the Belgians call it “les Plaisirs d'hiver”. This great festival begins at the end of November and lasts the entire month of December until the beginning of January. The city is adorned with Christmas lights and "chalets" in places full of stories and legends. The people of Brussels usually attend with friends or family to taste the typical seasonal products or simply to find the much sought after gifts for Saint Nicholas, for Christmas or for the arrival of the Three Kings. After attending the spectacular light and sound show, we will visit the Church of San Nicolás and discover the passion of the Belgians for this famous saint.

We will continue to the emblematic San Caterina square, to know the typical Christmas gastronomy that Belgians consume, such as: the cougnou, the Stoemp aux chicons & lardons dish, Les peket and the Tartiflette ..., And why not, do we stop for a mulled wine with our local guide?

We will also see approximately more than 250 chalets that are spread throughout the capital, creating a festive atmosphere very typical of northern Europe. Our tour ends at the Place de la Monnaie (patinoire) where Napoleon built a theater to have fun in Brussels.

Claries fue toda una profesional! Lo que es una vergüenza es la gente de éste grupo que desaparecía después de dos horas de tour, sin decir ni gracias. De unas 20 o 30 personas que éramos nos quedamos en un grupo de diez hasta el final, lamentable el comportamiento!
