Get ready for the "Winter in Antwerp"

Winter is coming, and our fair city has some wonderful entertainment in store for you. Starting on 7th December.

Each year Antwerp is covered in a cosy winter atmosphere. This year’s events will kick off on 7th December with day-long entertainment.


Get to the “Grote Markt”. Stallholders are opening their chalets to welcome you with lots of delicious treats. Glühwein, gin, brandy and sweets are waiting for you.


In the mood for some more action? Head to the Quays to enjoy an astonishing “Rail ‘n Snow” spectacle. Snowboard shows and pumping DJ-sets await the thrill-seekers among you. More info on


All the little visitors will be welcomed in the Kindergarten on the Steenplein for a circus and other activities.


If you like musicals and ice skating art, you’ll love the “Best of musicals on Ice” performance. Head to the icerink on the Groenplaats to witness a show combining the classical choreographies of the world’s most famous musicals.


On the Handschoenmarkt, right in front of our majestic cathedral, the magical Winter Forest will ignite its sparkling lights. From now on, you’ll walk through a mystical decor of enchantingly beautiful tree sculptures. A true and unique experience of light, views and scents.


Back at the “Grote Markt'“ the Joe Christmas House will officially open its doors. The radio personas will make radio shows from their pop-up headquarters in the Christmas House. To kick of, they invite you to join the performance of Soulsister.
