Liege offers so much more than just another Christmas Market - the whole city centre transforms into a magical and enchanting Christmas Village: Belgiums top Christmas attraction

As the days draw towards their shortest Christmas markets and twinkly lights start to appear in nearly every town in Belgium. They like their markets traditional, cosy and enchanting here: wonderlands where one can forget everyday stress and spend quality time with friends and family, drinking hot chocolate and staggering about on the ice-rink. Liege offers much more than just a market – an entire Christmas village transforms the city centre into a magical and enchanting place. Over 33 years the Christmas Village has carved out a reputation for being the top Christmas attraction in Belgium with an estimated 2 million visitors visiting its 200 chalets which offer an extravaganza of festive products, gifts and treats. Live music, costumed characters, funfair rides, decorations, lights …. all in a warm and hospitable atmosphere.

ITINERARY

Saturday - The day is free to explore the "Village de Noel" in Liege old city centre - just a 15 minute walk from the hotel.

There is no entry fee - it starts at 11am and stays open until midnight.

Sunday - We drive to Durbuy, known as the Smallest City in the World, it has a big Christmas market. It is the ideal place to unearth artisan products, gift ideas and 1001 things that will add something special to your Christmas dinner table. Cobbled streets and wooden framed buildings lend an old fashioned atmosphere to the charming medieval gem. If you tire of the market there is a topiary park, traditional brewery, castle and pretty riverside walks.

Monday - Homeward bound we pause at Lille in France which has its own market, before joining an afternoon Eurotunnel crossing back to the UK. Return to Dorset that evening.
