One of the most beautiful markets I’ve visited in Europe. Perfect place to sit, people watch and take in the atmosphere. Pick up a Belgian waffle from one of the nearby stores and sit on the steps of the main building. Go at sunset (around...More

Went after breakfast. That was a mistake. Lots of fresh fruit, prepared food and treats. Got some smoked salmon that was amazing. Some Nutella donuts to die for. Do not miss this and go super hungry!

Very beautiful square, with lots to see and do. Particularly nice on a summer evening. They have a traditional market there on Saturdays.

Brugge is full of great historic places and the Markt is one of them - it is well worth a visit and the shopping around adds to its character.

If you wonder how a square would look like in af fairytale, just visit Markt in Bruges. It’s so pretty and perfect that even Disney couldn’t have drawn it better. Remember iPhone or camera!
