This week is packed with arrivals of our frequent (and new!) tenants that came exclusively for the Christmas market!! They are all excited for the opening which takes place TODAY!!! We can barely await to stroll around their huts while drinking a glass of mulled wine to get warm and to eat all the delicious Christmas specialties.

The Christmas market in Liège, existing for 31 years already, is the most important one in Belgium due to its size and the atmosphere that is surrounding it. Every year, there are around 200 huts that attract almost 2 million visitors among which you can find more and more visitors from all over the world!

The festivities begin TODAY. Don’t miss it because on top of all, Liège was elected the European Christmas City!!!


No, Autumn is not sad in Belgium! :)

 

 

Here it is, automn ! 


Leaves are going to fall off and the weather to become cooler. But no way to feel depressed! Ze Team shares with you their favorite activities which will made your Belgian autumn nice !
If you don’t already know what you’ll do in Liège in October, don’t worry ! All people from Liège will certainly recommend you to go to the “Foire de Liège“. From  September 30th till November 12th, you can discover more than 170 attractions. Another “must see” in Liège ? If I you are in Liège on the 
7th of October, you shouldn’t miss the “Nuit des Coteaux” ! The whole historic center is enlightened with candles, and you’ll find lots of bars and music.


And what about Brussels? Children there are going to be the VIP of october ! They
will have fun with a pile of Lego (and you, too) during the Bricklive. And if you want to go back in time, Brussels proves you that it is possible, thanks to the playful and alive exhibition Dino World, you’ll know all the history of dinosaurs!

 


Notices to budding artists and gourmets

 

If you want to disfrut of your holiday to express your creativity, be the 21th of July to le Parc de la Boverie.

Everything will be made to make you forget your hard working’s week with a friendly picnic on the grass.
Le Parc de La Boverie even provides you with easels, and a super team that has the objective to reveal your artistic talent.
For children, they will be occupied all the afternoon thanks to a funny visit programmed in the museum and other great activities.
You just have to come with your picnic, your family or your friends, and to enjoy this day off.

And if you want a little bit of culture, the museum will be open!

CULTURE : CREATIVE MORNINGS

“Monthly morning meetings for compulsive creators”!

CreativeMornings are meetings organised free of charge by cities (or other large towns). The overall concept is ideal for those seeking to awaken the spirit in the hope that the body may follow suit. We go regularly, before heading out to work, to find out new things, meeting enthusiasts in a café to fill our minds with ideas to be shared on our Facebook page, website or in our newsletters.

For Liège, click here, and for Brussels click there!


CULTURE : KINGS OF COMEDY CLUB

A comedy club in Brussels with both an elegant and relaxed atmosphere.

KOCC
During the week and at the weekend, the KOCC brings the quirky and traditional concept of a dinner-show back into fashion. Whilst sitting round a table to enjoy a meal (i would recommend the pasta and salads over the burgers, which are sometimes too big and sickly), you will be entertained by young fairly experienced talents and comedians, who have came to test their jokes and sketches on an intimate audience before taking them to a bigger stage.

Although, I should confess that out of the 7 comedians i have already seen there, only 2 of them really made me laugh out loud (especially Inno JP ), whilst 4 of them made me smile and one of them, well, he would have made me leave if the wine hadn’t been so good!


CULTURE : THE “GENTSE FEESTEN”

Every year, in July, you can’t help but fall in love with Ghent. Or fall in love in Ghent…
gentsefeesten

For 10 days, the entire town will be decorated with fairy lights and the most attractive façades will be treated to spectacular colour illuminations: so learn to use the flash on your camera before coming… Alternatively, just ignore such technicalities and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere of small concerts and dances to be heard here and there, in the open air, on the water, in the streets, on the grass or in other, sometimes lesser-known locations chosen for the occasion.

Practical information may be found here.


WITH THE FAMILY (or friends) : URBAN TRAIL

On the heels of the “Brussels 20km”, the 10km Brussels Urban Trail is due to take place on July 5!

A little more manageable, more accessible, and certainly less daunting… Anyone who feels reluctant or out of practice can even follow an individual training programme, available to all participants. And even stragglers can simply enjoy the historical and cultural sights of Brussels from the vantage point of the chosen route.
An ideal opportunity to take up jogging if you have never done it before!
