Winter Wonders is back!

Winter Wonders is back!

After being
cancelled due to the pandemic last year the Christmas event Winter Wonders will
once again be organised in the Belgian and Flemish capital this year.  Visitors will have to mask and the event will
be staged in several neighbourhoods of the City of Brussels.

“It’s our
twentieth Winter Wonders” exclaims alderman Delphine Houba.  “Not only are we taking up station on Brussels’
market square, but Winter Wonders is also being organised in the Marollen
neighbourhood, the Ter Kameren Wood, Neder-over-Heembeek and Laken.  There’s a Christmas tree on the market square
and an ice rink at De Brouckère.  This year’s
theme is rail travel as will be clear from our programme of events.”

The City of
Brussels is determined to see the event go ahead.  As a consequence Covid safety measures are
being taken.  Visitors will have to mask
and the Covid Safe Ticket is required at the ice rink.

“We want to
attract foreign visitors too” says Houba. 
“It’s important for employment, shops, hospitality and hotels.”

The
Brussels hotel sector is overjoyed the event can go ahead.  Rodolphe Van Wayenbergh: “This is good news
for our sector.  In a normal year hotels
are full during Winter Wonders but due to the pandemic many people have adopted
a wait and see approach”.
