With Eurostar, you can enjoy this year’s festivities in all European destinations. The Eurostar has a wealth of offers and promotions to make your holiday celebration more exciting and wonderful. You can plan your short or weekend holidays to European destinations during this Christmas season.
Brussels Christmas Market
Brussels is famous for its delicious cuisine during the Christmas season. So don’t miss out on visiting this wonderful city during the holidays. It takes place on the Grand-Place, famous for the elaborately engraved facades of its guild houses. You can also enjoy ice skating, as the Brussels Fish Market is transformed into ice rinks during this period. I suggest you explore the snack stall at this spectacular market, as the food is so delicious that you will love to come here again and again. Buy a lot and don’t forget to eat Belgian chocolates. You can easily reach this place by waiting for the Eurostar high-speed train from London’s St Pancras International Station and arrive at Brussels’ Midi Station in the record time of 1 hour 51 minutes.
Cologne Christmas Market
Cologne has four Christmas markets around the city that attract millions of visitors from all over the world. The most impressive and beautiful of these is the “Am Dom” market, which takes place in front of Cologne’s cathedral. The view from the market is amazing and overwhelming, as it is decorated with lights and other light effects.
The surroundings are impressive and you can see more than 150 stalls, all of them of gothic structure. Most of the stalls are poisoned around the Christmas tree and offer decorations, handicrafts, handmade candles, pottery, and sweets.
Christmas Market in Lille
This market is the largest and longest in northern France. It is the most visited market at Christmas, as the Eurostar has a direct connection to Lille. The Eurostar takes you from London to Lille in 1 hour and 20 minutes and offers a lot of Christmas shopping. This spectacular market is located in Rihour, in the center of the city. You can admire more than 50 stalls with decorations, art, crafts, sweets, and local products. A special event takes place on Christmas Eve when Santa Claus “falls” from the 80-meter high bell tower of the Chamber of Commerce.
