DECEMBER 3 — If you are planning a winter vacation to Europe and haven’t yet decided upon a destination — or if you just need a tip for the future — you won’t find a more festive place to visit than Bruges.
Ok, it might not be the most obvious holiday haunt. If you’re travelling all that distance, you’ll probably want to spend your time exploring somewhere more famous like Paris, Amsterdam or London.
But in terms of providing a Christmas atmosphere, a genuine northern European winter wonderland experience, you won’t find a more authentic venue than Bruges, a historic city in the north of Belgium.
For starters, it’s cold. Really cold. And isn’t that the way it should be?
