33th edition, highlighted by the European recognition granted to Liège with the title of “European Christmas Capital 2018”.

Throughout its 32 years of existence, the Christmas Village of Liège has become, thanks to its size (200 wood chalets), its duration and its spirit, the most important Christmas market in Belgium. Each year, it attracts to Liege a public of about two million people, with more and more foreign visitors.

Faithful to the long German tradition of Christmas markets, the Christmas Village of Liège recreates the enchanting and magical spirit of Christmas celebrations in the heart of the city. But also true to its Latin nature, with the help of its Village Council and its many gourmet chalets, the Christmas Village has innovated with a festive and friendly atmosphere, main feature that sets it apart from its Germanic and Alsatian counterparts.

Spearhead of the program « Liège, Christmas City », the Christmas Village works together with all the shopkeepers of the city centre and along with many other Christmas activities: the Christmas skating rink, the European Circus Festival and the “Noël des Cathédrales”.

The Christmas Village is organized by the non-profit association ENJEU together with the non-profit association TOURNEVENT, under the sponsorship the City of Liege's Deputy Mayor for Economic Development.
