Christmas Magic at Brussels Airport
Will you be travelling soon? Make sure you arrive at the airport in plenty of time so you have enough opportunities to have a stroll at our Christmas market or to enjoy the festive promotions.
Travelling with kids
Family lane with Olaf
Are you travelling with children? Our family lane will be open from 20/12 through 07/01. Have a great start of your holiday and meet Olaf from Disney’s Frozen who is waiting for you near the family lane. This happy snowman puts a smile on everyone’s face. You can have your picture taken with Olaf while you wait and he has a little surprise for all the children who behaved well.
On Santa’s lap
Santa Claus will be a guest at the airport from 20/12 up to and including 23/12 and he hands out free Christmas hats! Children can have their picture taken with this always cheerful resident of the North Pole. An experience you will be cherishing for a long time.
Do you already know BRUce Pepper? This sympathetic robot can be found just passed the screening from 11 December up to and including 14 January. BRUce Pepper is full of surprises: he gives you information on your flight, predicts the weather, takes selfies and, last but not least, he hands out presents.
We will have games in winter theme at several locations so you can kill your time a bit while waiting for your flight. Both the older and the younger ones are able to indulge themselves here! The airport games can be found at gate A60, B20-B30 and the Bar Rouge. Signal in the Snow, Clean the Cockpit or Yeti on the Runway, what game will you be trying?
Outside on the curb (departure level) you will find a cosy Christmas chalet and attached winter terrace. Get into the Christmas mood while enjoying a glass of mulled wine or special Christmas beer and taste one of our delicious Christmas snacks. Opened every day from 7.00 to 11.00 o’clock and from 15.00 to 18.00 o’clock.
Christmas is not complete without a visit from the authentic Coca-Cola Christmas truck. We welcome the truck at our airport on 26/12. Take a fun Christmas picture with Santa Claus, visit the elves’ workshop and receive your personal present or post a thank-you note or Christmas wish on the gigantic LED-screen of the truck. Finally get treated on a delicious Coca-Cola.
Music at the airport
Brussels Airport is a great fan of a bit of music in the terminal. In the connector, on the way to pier A, an amazing grand piano is located. We recently placed a second one in Pier B. We gladly welcome all musicians who are not afraid to show their talent to play a Christmas tune. No musical talent? A few more-known pianists will be visiting us on 15/12, 20/12 up to including 22/12 and 26/12 up to and including 29/12 to play Christmas carols. Jingle bells rock!
Did you just get back from your holiday? Close your trip swinging and choose your favourite Christmas song on the jukebox in the reclaim hall.
Chocolate Christmas trees
Two delicious Christmas trees have been created for the fans of sweet flavours made of Belgian chocolate by Neuhaus. You will find these trees behind the screening near the elevators in the direction of pier A or pier B close to The Belgian Chocolate House. This luxurious chocolate shop has won the Mercurius-award for best retail-concept of the year. Don’t hesitate to visit the shop and see what’s going on.
Do you want to be in the race of winning a delicious package of Neuhaus with a value of € 179? Join our contest on the iPads that are set up next to the chocolate trees. And don’t forget… you are free to look, but not to touch ;-).
