The Brussels Christmas market - Plaisirs d'Hiver (Winter Wonder) - is a fairly new arrival to the scene. It has only been around since 2004, but its location at the Grand-Place of Brussels and around the Bourse (on the Place Sainte-Catherine and on the MarchÃ© aux Poissons) gives it a centuries-old vibe. Almost 250 chalets, fairground rides, an ice rink and bauble-studded Christmas tree make it a wonderland. Then there are the mouth-watering delicacies to enjoy - the local chocolates, pots of mussels and Belgian waffles. Running until January 1.
