Upcoming Events Across Europe
Winter Wonders Festival, Belgium
Brussels gets decked out in all its Christmas time glory throughout the month of December during its Winter Wonders festival. Ice skating, sledding, seasonal chalet shopping, and more can be found at many different locations throughout the city. The Electrabel Nights display at Grand Place is also a must-see. The scene becomes all the more charming when snow blankets the area.
Christmas Fair and New Year's Ball, Austria
A number of Christmas markets set up shop Vienna throughout December, with hundreds of stalls offering handmade trinkets, foodstuffs, and gourmet wines and spirits to locals and visitors alike. Active during daylight hours as well, nighttime is when the real market celebrations begin, with carols being sung and Christmas trees being lit up.
Festivities in the country’s capital, Edinburgh, stretch from the end of the month into the New Year. Torchlight processionals (a.k.a., the “River of Fire”), dancing in the streets, fairground rides, candlelight concerts, movies, fireworks, and much more all contribute to a fun-filled celebratory atmosphere.
