Enjoy a festive break in the company of like-minded travellers, as we take you on a spectacular holiday in beautiful Belgium. We begin on Christmas Eve, in the Belgium capital of Brussels. Enjoy the merry atmosphere and visit the local Christmas market for some last minute shopping, or why not take a stroll along the Grand Place and enjoy a festive treat in one of the many café’s or restaurants. On Christmas day, enjoy a leisurely morning and chance to join us on a visit to Mouscron and its magical Christmas Market. Stroll around the various stalls and appreciate the city’s amazing architecture. As the holiday season comes to an end, so does the tour and we finish the festivities in the town of Dinant, famous for its onion-shaped dome of the cathedral.
Door-to-Door or local departure by coach, then continue to Belgium for a five-night stay.
Today we include a visit to Bruges. Known as the 'Venice of the North', it is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, where canals crossed with pretty, humpback bridges and winding, cobbled streets lead to picturesque market squares. The famous Belfry is one of the city’s most prominent symbols, towering above the city.
Today, we include a full-day excursion to Brussels. Located in the heart of the city is the majestic Grand Place, a square surrounded by ornate guild houses. Elegant cafés also line the square, offering a pleasant spot to relax and enjoy a coffee or beer. Around the centre, narrow streets lead out to a number of museums, interesting shops and restaurants. The city is particularly proud of the 17th century Manneken Pis, the famous statue of a naked boy ‘taking a leak’ on a street corner. Also worth a visit is the Rue des Bouchers (Butcher’s Street), a quaint street lined with restaurant after restaurant displaying impressive arrays of lobster, crab, mussels and fish. The Sablon is another part of the city renowned for its delicious fare. It boasts many antique shops as well as its numerous café’s, taverns, wine bars and chic restaurants.
Location: Free Time or Ghent
Enjoy a leisurely morning at our hotel before lunch. This afternoon we offer an optional excursion to the medieval city of Ghent. No other Flemish city boasts so many historical monuments and the city has a magical atmosphere at this special time of year. Marvel at the Gravensteen Castle, the Gothic Cathedral of St Bavon and the Graslei, where the reflections of the splendid historical houses shimmer in the waters of the River Leie.
Included excursion to Mons. See the beautiful Grand Place and City Hall, flanked by ornate buildings. The Bell Tower remains the main focal point and chief landmark, standing on the former Castle Hill above the town.
