The view of this lake is just impeccable. It's just great for a walk or a picnic to enjoy the scenery.

Valentine+Bruge ? Best valentine ever. Although it's cold but that's what makes it even more romantic.lovely views everywhere and amazing scenery. You can even take a boat trip with a small price to enjoy every piece of it

The lake is beautiful and given the size of Bruges there really is no reason not to check it out but don't be overwhelmed. Possibly more breathtaking later in the year when the hundreds of swans are back. Sad I missed them

The lake is beautiful! You must visit this lake when in Bruges. Perfect for some photos! There are traditional tea rooms along the walk to the lake that sell amazing hot chocolate and cupcakes.

The whole of this park is great for walking around - steady paths throughout for a leisurely post lunch meander.

This is an amazing quiet place and has beautiful swans and atmosphere. If possible take the boat to visit here and if it is open there are gardens and grounds where the nuns still live to visit.

Great for a good stroll only minutes from the city center, and easy access to Love Lake that has various restaurants/bars.
