We didn't do the whole trip but were fascinated by all the windmills. They are in great shape and it was our only chance at seeing windmills. We enjoyed it!
Very tastefully done location and building with an excellent exhibition of Salvatore Dali. There was another exhibition of Vincent Van Gogh which was also quite interesting to see.
Went here on my solo bicycle tour of Belgium and the battle fields of WWI and WWII, and was overly impressed with this piece of history. Get a map, hire a bike and ride the ring of Brugge. Take a day looking at lovely canals, windmills, buildings. Best thing I did in Brugge by far.

Look out in particular for Hieronymus Bosch's 'Last Judgment' and the 'Madonna and... More
Bruges and art go togheter as cream on a pie, around every corner there are things to see and to visit, Bruges is a relatively small city, but has places of interest every 50 m throughout the city
Indeed the canals,swans,ducks,Flemish artists etc...and as usual you discover a brilliant artist and nothing on sale to take back home apart from a lousy postcard that doesn't even go near to what the artist is about, I am talking about Frank Brangwyn, gorgeous illustrator, drawing skills hardly equalized (could just compare his work to Daumier), just plain respect for such...
