Brugge is definitely worth a visit while in Belgium. We took a train from Brussels (60€ return tickets for 2 adults). After we arrived we had a stroll around before we decided to took the little citybus tour. For 20€ you can go for a one hour tour and get some insight info about the town. It's a good tour... More

Came here for a day from a cruise it's a really nice interesting place. First stop was a brewery in the center for a drink then a stroll around the shops and buildings to the square. Had a nice meal. Just a nice place to spend a day.

Huge square , very nice architecture , lots of cafes and places to eat , close to shopping streets , point of the carriage tours. Lots of pretty buildings to see and take pictures. Make sure you sit at one of the cafes and just loose some precious relaxing time with a delicious chocolate

If you're looking for amazing architecture and atmosphere, you can't be Brugge! We just visited again on a cold but sunny day, and it was stunning! There are many tourist traps, but since I'm a tourist, I want to be trapped! We spent money in the chocolate shops, climbed the bell tower, bought some lace and waffles, and had dinner... More

Had a lovely day at the Christmas markets in Bruges although this place would be beautiful in any season. Definitely worth a trip if you are visiting Belgium
