Ghent Winter Festivities
The city centre will become a winter wonderland with an ice-skating rink under the City Pavilion. From the giant Ferris wheel you'll enjoy a
view of the city from the air. There is also a Christmas market with international stands and the Castle of the Counts changes into a winter wonderland castle, filled with light,
festively decorated tables, Christmas music and warm delicacies.
