Have a magical Winter in Antwerp

Have a magical Winter in Antwerp

From Friday 8 December 2023 to Sunday 7 January 2024, Antwerp will be transformed into an enchanting winter wonderland. New this year is the expansion to two new venues: Hendrik Conscienceplein and Opera Square. Enjoy winter activities, atmospheric light displays, wondrous walks and heart-warming moments throughout the city. At the Christmas market, you will be able to buy great Christmas gifts and goodies, and are bound to be enchanted by the atmospheric lighting. Be sure to pass through the magical light tunnel on Suikerrui, something that will no doubt yield Instagram-worthy photos. Kiss your sweetheart under the mistletoe in the authentic German tower or enjoy a romantic ride on the Ferris wheel. At the foot of the Cathedral, where Nello and Patrasche are sleeping under a warm blanket near the nativity scene, you may well be musically surprised. Daredevils may want to test their skating skills on the ice rink. End your day in the welcoming winter bar Bar Den.
