No matter where you go in Europe you can rest assured that December
is a fantastic month to visit any city. The Christmas lights, marketsand
events make towns and cities all over glow, it really is a magical time
Due to the central locations of all our Leopold Hotels you’re never
far from the action and during the Christmas the period is no exception.
So whether you are visiting Sheffield, Antwerp or Oudenaarde you’re
guaranteed to be near all the Christmas Festivities.
At the Leopold Hotel Sheffield the Christmas lights are being turned
on nice and early. When it comes to December you can be sure the city
will be twinkling. The Sheffield Christmas market runs from the 14th of November to 24th
of December set up and takes place in Faregate. This year, we're sure
you won’t be disappointed. The traditional Christmas Market is set up
with wooden cabins offering a fantastic selection of festive goods, from
food, to drink to hand crafted goods. This year the Moroccan market is
going to be set up alongside the Christmas and between the two you’ll
find Santa in Sheffield’s own little Lapland.
Antwerp’s Christmas market takes place from the 6th – 27th of December. If you can make it to Antwerp on opening night, the 6th
December then do! There will be a fantastic light spectacular parade to
celebrate the first night. Throughout Antwerp there will be Christmas
festivities spread throughout the city to include Steenplein (location
of the Ice rink), Suikerrui, Groenplaats & Grote Markt. Our location
near all these spots makes Leopold Hotel Antwerp the ideal
accommodation to enjoy the Christmas Market.
Two Christmas markets will be taking place in Oudenaarde this year.
The main event will be happening in the Market Square, just a short
distance from us! Seasonal events will begin on the 4th of
December which includes an ice skating rink. You’ll find a wide
selection of stalls serving festive food, warming drinks & gifts. A
smaller market will open up during the last two weekends before
Christmas offering even more goodies!
