Brussels in the winter doesn’t have to mean those fiendish green veg that invade your Christmas dinner.

Instead, why not plan a diverting city break to one of Europe’s most attractive capitals?

Brussels combines glorious architecture, delicious chocolate, postcard-pretty streets and wonderful beer.

Today’s Big Deal offers a three night break including flights and four star hotel.

Some dates available coincide with the city’s Winter Wonders festival and Christmas markets, making it the perfect chance to get into the festive spirit.

Explore Brussels

All visitors to Brussels get their bearings from the ornate and attractive main square, the Grand Place, with its distinctive decorated guildhalls and imposing Town Hall. It’s an impressive starting point for an exploration of the opulent and delightful streets of the city’s old centre.

The other traditional must-see is the cheeky Manneken Pis statue of the little boy gleefully irrigating the street.

The Brussels Winter Wonders season opens on 24th November 2017 with festive markets and events all around the centre, lasting throughout December.

Highlights include the magnificent son et lumière illuminations on the Grand-Place, a wealth of Christmas street markets, traditional carousels on Place Sainte-Catherine and a skating rink at Marché aux Poissons.
