Christmas Market Visit
Posted Dec 14, 2016
We drove to Brussels to visit the Christmas Market. This hotel has parking for €14 per day via an underground system near to but not linked to hotel. It is within walking distance as long as you are fairly fit. There is a shopping mall just across the road and shop lined streets all the way to the Grand Place. We took a day trip to Ghent via train which was easy enough to master and used the tram system to visit Arc du Cinquantenaire and the Atomium. We crammed a fair bit into the visit and had some lovely meals albeit it is quite expensive if you have a few drinks with your meal. Our room was small but sufficient for the amount of time we spent in it.
