Visited Bruges during one of my solo trips to holland in June 2016. Needless to say it ticked all the boxes for the history lover in me. One can see how the make and style of architecture changes as you crossover the border from Netherlands into Belgium. Then you cross a really posh locality of Antwerp to marvel at the... More

A beautiful, unique historic town with great night life and stunning buildings and corners. Well worth a visit! I wished the bars were opened longer at night in the summer.

The usual city centre square, with cafe's around the edge to enjoy a coffee and watch the world go by. A couple of buildings add to the character. Hard to miss if visiting Bruges

Visited here in winter so was a little cold, however this did not detract from how pretty this town is. We had a great weekend just walking around and getting lost. We visited a number of pubs, coffee shops and places of interest and really enjoyed ourselves.
