Belgium at Christmas

Jump to last reply

Hi all. We are flying into Amsterdam Dec 19 and out of Brussels on Dec 27. Tentatively, I am thinking 4 days in Amsterdam and 4 days in Belgium. My question is how to allocate our time in Belgium roughly Dec 23-27. Or should we consider staying in Amsterdam for 6 nights and then spend 1-2 days in Belgium.

We don't mind moving hotels once so I am thinking one or two cities or to base ourselves in Brussles and take day trips.

I'm curious, what is the best city for us to be in on Christmas Day in terms of being able to get something to eat and possibly have something to do? Are trains running? I know Amsterdam has tons of museums etc open on Dec 25, but not sure about Belgium.

A bit about us: me adult female early 40s, traveling with my mom early 70s, but has mobility and spunk of someone my age. We both like art, museums, walking / hiking (I know, not ideal conditions in December), beer/wine, markets, politics, books, vegetarian food, music/concerts, and opportunities to meet and chat with locals. We are not particularly interested in touring churches or being super close to the water given the weather.

Taking any and all suggestions.

Thanks!
