There will be more police presence at the Brussels Christmas market this year than originally planned because of the recent riots in the centre of the city where much of the market takes place.
Work has begun to demolish the restaurants and bars in Bruparck at Heysel, and Brussels-City has announced that a new green space will be developed on the site – though it might be temporary.
The new green space will be freely accessible and link Kinepolis, Mini-Europe and Océade. The city plans to allow food trucks on the site, which could alter according to the season or activities taking place on the site.
