Ostend will have two Christmas markets

Ostend will also transform the Leopold Park into an enchanting winter park with Christmas chalets and a floating skating rink next winter. But there will be an extra Christmas market on the Wapenplein. With this, Ostend wants to establish a link between the Leopold Park and the trade centre. The new format has been in effect for at least three years.

“Spreading the Christmas market over two squares is a win-win,” says mayor Bart Tommelein. “We involve the Christmas shopper, which is also a plus for the Ostend traders. At the same time, we are increasing support among the residents around the Leopoldpark, through a better distribution of visitors. Skaters will still be able to go to the Leopoldpark and with the second Christmas market We want to focus even more on the experience for residents and visitors.”
