Christmas markets are an old holiday tradition in Belgium where both locals and visitors can shop for original and traditional decorations along with other Christmas goodies at open-air stalls in the heart of the city. As in many Belgian cities, Antwerp organizes a yearly Christmas market. Every year tens of thousands of people visit this popular event.
Since last year the market is back to the ‘Grote Markt’, and we don't understand why it ever left this main square in front of the city hall. PLUS this year the christmas market stalls have branched out into Handschoenmarkt, the Suikerrui and the Steenplein in front of the old Castle.
