From 8th December to 31st December 2022
The Gentse Winterfeesten is an authentic Christmas market right in the enchanting heart of Ghent.
The entire Winterfeesten area and all squares will ooze the atmosphere of the Nordics. Just imagine the smell of pine, lots of green, cosiness, lights, northern lights, moose, chalets, homeliness, warmth...
Everyone feels welcome, and it's just great to spend a fun and heartwarming time with friends and family. You can just picture yourself walking through a Scandinavian Christmas village, right in the middle of a wintery pine forest.
When visiting the stunning inner city centre of Ghent, plenty of magical moments will cross your path. The smell of a snowy pine forest, northern lights, the moon peeking through the stars... Winter 'chill' becomes winter 'warmth'.
