Whether you agree or not, it is a fact that the whole of Bruges gets involved in the Christmas festivities. The Christmas lights are exuberant, there are Christmas trees in the windows of every building, and Christmas decorations invade every shop and corner of the historic downtown area. And, no less important, everybody seems to be filled with the festive and friendly spirit of Christmas. The epicenter of it all is in the beautiful central square, with the famous Bruges steeple as a backdrop.
For lovers of ice skating, Christmas is also a time for skating fun.
