    Answer Report Abuse
    • Yes, the Christmas Market will be open from 3 in the afternoon to 7.30 in the evening on Sunday. It is located at Grote Markt this year and has an ice rink as well. 

      There are several trains that connect Ypres and Bruges. The round trip will cost you somewhere around 30 dollars. But, it is always better to check the official websites for exact ticket prices.
