I can imagine it's beautiful year round, but they did Christmas like I haven't seen before. Ice skaters, horse drawn carriages, Christmas stalls, food, lights and even the bell tower chimed with Christmas songs.

When we visited there was a small xmas market on the Market. Not as nice as in Germany, but at least you could get some warm drinks.

This place seems to have a constant ringing/chiming of Church bells and it is really nice to hear this.

The Market Square of Bruges is the beating heart of the city and basically the perfect location to start exploring this amazing place. Right at the square some major attractions can be found, many others are within a walking distance of less than 15 minutes....More

You can’t get away from the fact that bruges market square is beautiful. It has a lovey bustle about it and at Christmas it’s beautifully lit. However if you are just going for Christmas markets you may be disappointed especially if you’ve been to Germany....More

Parking is very limited in side streets on parking meters. It's very easy to walk on the streets and it's the best way to visit all the nice and beautifull places : by walk or riding a bike!

I personally think Bruges is way more beautiful than Antwerp. There is also more to do for tourists. However, if you want to visit to shop (clothes & shoes), I recommend Antwerp.
