  1. Hello,
    Thank you for the effort to sum it up!
    Do you know if Christmas market decorations could light up earlier? before the Christmas Markets actually starts?
    I’m planning a trip to Antwerp and Ghent from 27th of Nov to 1st of Dec.
    Kind regards!

    • Hi Christian, you’re very welcome! Thanks so much for the comment. We can’t say with 100% certainty as we aren’t the official organizers, but your trip dates are close enough to the start of Xmas markets that we think there should be at least a few festive decorations around during your visit, especially in retail areas.

      Even if not, both cities are beautiful without festive decor (we’ve visited many times). We hope you have a great visit, and fingers crossed the decorations will be up by the time you arrive! PS don’t miss the interior of the train station in Antwerp – it’s really spectacular.
