Christmas Markets Koln, Germany

The Christmas markets in Koln are a great place to visit for both Christmas shopping and getting into the festive spirit. There were so many markets across the city that we couldn’t even visit them all during our short weekend trip. So there’s plenty to do. All round great food, beer and entertainment!

Christmas time in Brussels, Belgium

The Grand Place is a great place to sit and have a beer, made even better by the festive light show. Every hour music would start and the buildings began to light up in various colours around the Grand Place in time with the music. This was an unexpected bonus to our quick 1 day visit.
