While in Bruges there’s no need to visit museum and a bunch of attractions, just walk around and get lost in its streets. Every corner is postcard worthy

The whole centre of Bruges is a delight. Around every corner is another beautiful building, waterway, tree or scene. It's a fabulous city to wander around, shop and enjoy the ambiance.

Mind blowing - this is a must see. But it’s hard to avoid if you are visiting Bruges. The building in the corner is said to house the blood of Christ. Get in. Have a look its free.

A place every couple should visit, the architecture in the city is so unspoiled and new buildings are in keeping with the older ones and do not stand out or look out of place. Suggest taking a canal trip it's a good way to see...More

The historic center is in a relatively small, wonderfully charming area. We stayed Friday and Saturday night within this area, it was so quiet throughout the night and into mid-morning. At that point, the streets would become pleasantly lively with fellow tourists. So many great...More

Very unexpected just how lovely this place is. You can walk everywhere and eat lots of great chocolate. Beer is also very popular. A lovely place to visit for the weekend. Plenty of places to eat. The little boat trip a must.

Great destination for a weekend BUT it does get crowded. You will have to wait in line for most things. Try the early morning free walking tour which is 5 star AND the Torture Museum which is very good.

You need to go Brussels South station (the same one as the Euro train). There are usually about 2 trains an hour but none of them are directly to Bruges. We took the Ostend train traveling to Bruges and the Brussels train... More
