Known officially as Winter Wonders (Plaisirs d'Hiver or Winter Pret), the yearly festivities run from Friday 26 November until Sunday 02 January. As always, the fully-decorated Grand Place will feature a musically-timed light show. From there, visitors can wander through alleys formed by hundreds of little wooden chalets selling mulled wine, heart-warming regional cuisine and adorable handicrafts.
At Place St. Catherine, this year's "guest of honour" will be Morocco, and visitors can look forward to sampling All Things Moroccan (except the sunny weather).
New additions this year include a "Magic Mirrors" house and luge run, which should be located somewhere on the Fish Market between the St. Catherine church and the Ferris wheel beyond the ice rink.
