FRIDAY 27, SATURDAY 28 AND SUNDAY 29.11 WINTER WONDERS WILL BE OPEN FROM 12:00 TO 20:00
It’s probably the event that draws the most visitors to Brussels. Whether you’re travelling from the other side of the globe, Laeken, Neder or Haren, the Winter Wonders prove the perfect opportunity to discover Brussels from the angle of conviviality and magic.
This unmissable happening greatly contributes to make our capital city into a privileged city-trip destination.
This year, the Winter Wonders’ guest of honour will be Tunisia, a country of culture and traditions. Through this choice, the City of Brussels is intent on championing the democratic process that stemmed from the "Jasmine Revolution" five years ago and rewarded with this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. This marks a strong signal to help the country’s main economy, tourism, get back on its feet as quickly as possible.
Like last year, the ice skating rink will be located on the place de la Monnaie and will gain in size. We’ll meet our old "classics" once more, including the Grand-Place’s Christmas tree and unmissable "sound & light show". The course gains in size every year and will encompass the rue Henri Maus and the Bourse-De Brouckère axis, which has become pedestrian and that will be lit by a thousand lights! These festivities must please everyone.
The heart of Brussels will be accessible to all by public transportation, by car, by bike, on foot… Once again it will be the scene of five magic weeks for a unique ambiance.
