Great place to visit for a few days. Park the car and leave it and walk or cycle everywhere. Such a beautiful town and friendly people.

They say Bruges is the Venice of the north, but I’ve been to Venice and Bruges is much prettier. Literally every corner you turn is another ooh ahh moment. Lots of tourists, even in October, so I would avoid the busier times.

Every street,building and storefront was a historic marvel. We spent 2 days exploring the streets, visiting historic churches and museums. So pretty.

Breathtaking and magical city center. Listen to the bells play and the people watch as you have a coffee or beer in one of the many cafes around this beautiful site.

Brugge is full of fascinating places,the architecture is beautiful,the cobbled streets and alleyways have a myriad of quaint and modern shops. The squares and cafes are very cosmopolitan and it is a chocoholics paradise. Well worth a visit.

Such a beautiful town, steeped in history, stunning architecture, great restaurants and many shops. We only spent the day here, but I'd totally recommend going for a couple of days and booking a walking tour, and perhaps a short trip on the canal, too, it...More
