Christmas in Medieval Bruges
23 December 2016
Note that there may be small differences between our general Itinerary for this break and a specific departure.
Discover picture perfect Bruges when it is all dressed for Christmas and enjoy an assorted chocolate box of included attractions! Staying in the heart of this beautiful medieval city, you are free to explore at leisure, enjoy included visits to Ypres and a traditional chocolate shop, and join our optional excursions to see even more. The Bruges Christmas Markets will be in full swing during our visit plus there’s the chance to explore the magical world of snow and ice at the Ice Palace on Christmas Day. This is a wonderful way to relax and enjoy this special time of year.
Day 1: London – Bruges
We travel aboard Eurostar from London to Lille and are taken by coach to our hotel in the heart of Bruges, where we enjoy a welcome drink followed by a relaxing evening.
Day 2: Bruges
After your included breakfast, you can join our Tour Manager and walk through the charming streets of Bruges, taking in the many sights. The remainder of the day is free for you to spend at leisure.
Day 3: Bruges & the Ice Palace
Merry Christmas! Today is free for you to relax and enjoy this special day in beautiful Bruges. We have included entrance to the Ice Palace, to explore a fantastic world of snow and ice, and later this evening we enjoy Christmas dinner at our hotel.
