Winter Glow


Winter Glow will be taking place throughout the city from 25 November 2022 until 08 January 2023

A wonderful winter experience – that’s what Winter Glow is all about. A winter festival packed with fascinating experiences, sparkle-filled special moments including a new Light experience trail, ice skating with unique decor on the Minnewater (Lake of love), a cosy winter bar, two Christmas markets, shopping fun during the many shopping days and a lovely walking trail to wander through the historic centre with its beautiful atmospheric lighting and Christmas decorations. Winter Glow will wrap you in its embrace and warm you up. In other words, there are more than enough reasons to stay in Bruges overnight and experience wintry Bruges at its most beautiful.
