Christmas Season in Europe Brussels' Giant Christmas Tree is back

Updated: Dec 26, 2020

It belongs to Brussels tradition as much as the famed Manneken Pis statue or the Atomium sculpture. Each November, Brussels Christmas Tree is back in front of the City Hall on Brussels Grand-Place, the main square in the heart of the historical town.

This year's Christmas tree is an 18m high Nordmann from a garden in Robertville, a small town in Liège province- East of Brussels. To make it truly sustainable, the cut tree will be replaced by the plantation of 10 new pines.

If you want to admire the stunning Christmas Tree surrounded by the lighting of the Grand Place, a webcam is available under http://www.brussels.be/webcam-grand-place. Best to look at the webcam is from 5pm (11pm in Bangkok:12am in Singapore) when the night falls down over the Belgian capital.

The tree and a nativity scene next to it are the only Christmas traditions organized by the city due to COVID-19 restrictions. The tree is to stay until January 6, 2021.
