Hi, Has anyone been on the big wheel - and if so, could you tell me how the carriages, or "gondolas" work - I would like it to be romantic and just be my girlfriend and I in it and not share it. Is that possible? Would you have to pay for the whole carriage? Many thanks.

Question about Brussels Christmas Market

Hi James, a VIP gondola which holds four adults and comes with a serving of champagne is 75euro - if you want to book ahead.

Many thanks. Would you know how to book ahead? I've tried emailing people on the website ( about booking, www.plaisirsdhiver.be ), but had no response. Thanks again.

If you know which hotel you're staying in it might be a good idea to give them a call and see if they'll arrange it for you.
