In Durbuy, this year, the Christmas market will be paying: here are all the access conditions

While questions hover over the holding of the Christmas markets in Durbuy, the market will open its doors tomorrow … But it will pay off.

This year, the Durbuy Christmas market will take place in a somewhat special way: there will be two closed areas with the obligation to present your Covid Safe Ticket (CST) from 12 years old. In these 2 zones: mask compulsory from 10 years old, sitting down to eat, and entry will be payable from 16 years old. How is this decision experienced on the spot?

“I feel confident and very happy that we can organize this Christmas market”, Alain Corné reacts enthusiastically. His stand, which offers the famous potatoes with foie gras, is ready, even if he knows that this year, it will be a rather special market. You will have to eat your potato sitting at a table. “It can be a good experience because there will be communication with people that there might not be before”, he said.

Alain hopes that the paid entry will not discourage anyone: “We deal with it. To organize it all comes at a cost. By explaining to people the fact that they will still be able to share moments of happiness, I think that they will be understanding and that it will be good “, he hopes.

And it seems to be the case, as evidenced by these tourists present that morning: “We find that normal, we have to pay well. We also spend money for the safety and health of people so it is normal for us”, launches this couple come to enjoy a walk.

On the side of the syndicate of initiatives, we justify this entry of 3 euros: “It requires a lot of security stewards, we have to close areas using barrier so that at a financial cost. If we want to meet our costs, and be able to ‘survive’, we are asking 3 euros exceptionally this year” , details Déborah Rousseau of the union.
