Brussels closes Winter Wonders’ Christmas market

The
authorities in the City of Brussels have decided to close the Winter Wonders’
Christmas market.  The city says it can’t
guarantee visitors have sufficient space as required under the latest corona
measures and can’t constantly check whether groups of people are not congregating.

Brussels
says some of the measures cannot be applied at some Winter Wonders’ locations. The
Christmas markets at Sint-Katelijne (Vismet, Sint-Katelijneplein and Black
Tower), at Beurs (Bourse) and Munt (Monnaie) are being shut from Sunday onwards.
Stallholders will be compensated. 

The ice
rink at De Brouckère, activities in the Ter Kameren Wood and all illuminations
and artistic installations that meet health requirements can stay open.

The City of
Brussels is disappointed: “The cancellation is a disappointment given the
positive dynamics this event gave to economic life in downtown Brussels and the
pleasant atmosphere it created”.
