Let us surprise you with our Winter Wonders in Brussels! With more than 200 chalets offering tempting treats and gifts, the Christmas Market of this city is the biggest in Belgium. All the inhabitants are determined to warm your hearts, especially during this end-of-year holiday period. One of the most important characters this month is Saint Nicholas, who gives lots of presents to good kids (and some adults). Do you know what we call here Saint Nicholas? We call him Sinterklaas... And from there maybe comes Santa Claus?

Besides the traditional religious sense of these holidays, the city of Brussels is always open to everybody. Visitors these days enjoy the lights in the Grand-Place, the Giant Wheel, the different rides for children, the sky village, the tartiflette, the hot wine, and the beer. Beer is essential! Belgium is the only country in the world where this drink is a human heritage by UNESCO.

How Beeyonder Works

  • What is a virtual tour?

    All of our online tours are live and interactive. This means everyone on the tour can speak directly to the guide throughout the tour to experience the destination as if you are actually there.

  • How To Join A Tour

    Easy to use! After booking, you get a unique link to a streaming platform, such as Zoom, to begin each tour. No other technology needed.

  • Qualified Guides & Hosts

    Our guides are local to their destination and vetted by our team. They are all certified and qualified to conduct virtual tours in amazing locations around the world.

Preparing for your Virtual Tour

This is a private Live Walking tour. You will be connected via Zoom and your guide will explain to you all the experiences while walking on the street. We love curious people so the more questions and interactions you do with your guide, the best!

You need to have the software Zoom installed on your cellphone, tablet, or laptop; and also a stable internet connection, speakers, or headphones.

Also, remember always the time difference when choosing a time for your experience. We usually can accept requests from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm (Brussels Time - CST + 1 UTC). Also important:

-Before 1.00 pm (always Brussels Time - CST + 1 UTC) most of the Christmas Market is not open yet.

-From 1.00 pm to 5.00 pm you will enjoy the experience with daylight.

-From 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm you will enjoy the experience with sunset/nightlight.

-Before 4.45 pm there is NOT Grand-Place Lights Show.

This tour is available from December, 5th onward.
