This place was really wonderful although at day it was packed at the evening it had a magical mystic touch. you can relax and sit on one of many benches, look at the resting swans and sink in the scenery with the lit up buildings, towers and bridges.

We found this place just before taking the train to go back in Antwerpen. It's a great landscape near the train station. You can't miss this one!

Well worth a visit to escape the busy tourist areas. Relax overlooking the lake one of the benches lining the lake and enjoy the stunning background.

This is a lovely, peaceful place close to our hotel. Swans clearly own the lake and seem completely at ease - one was nesting close to the footpath. There are paths around the lake and through the adjacent park - a lovely, relaxing spot.

Lovely little lake set in a park shaded by trees. Pick up a lunch and sit and have a picnic and enjoy the beauty and romantic Minnewater Lake.

We discovered Minnewater the first time we visited Bruges and immediately fell in love with it. During our more recent trip to Bruges we made a beeline for this place as it really stunned us, it's the perfect place to take a casual stroll with your loved one, arm in arm, taking in the water, swans and lovely architecture.

The walk across the bridge, the swans, the still lake, surrounded by beautiful flowers it is no wonder that it is referred to as 'the lake of love', such a peaceful setting and provider of so many great photographs, so pleased to visit and highly recommended to all others
