Christmas and New Year Events
If you are having an Antwerp Christmas here is a list of not to miss Antwerp Events.
St Nicholas (Sint Niklaas) arrives on 6 December to visit good children. Shops abound with yummy treats such as marzipan, flat hard cakes known as ‘klaasjes’ and ‘speculoos’, a hard gingerbread molded in the form of St. Nicholas.
And then the celebrations continue with the Antwerp Christmas Market. An absolutely magical event. There are wooden huts in the middle of the square selling all sorts of traditional specialities. You can sip mulled wine under the Christmas tree or try one of Antwerp's famous jenevers while warming up next to a cozy open fire
