Canal Boats Location in Bruges

I have looked around and cannot seem to find the location where the canal boats depart from. The map online is so microscopic I need a magnifying glass to read it.

Can someone please tell me the easiest way to find the canal boats landing. Also, I read that July/August temperatures in Bruges get up to only 70 degrees farenheit, is that true? It would be lovely to stroll this charming city under such comfortable climes.

Thank you.

Hi. The canal boats have about 5 departure points, an easy one to find is by walking through the ornate archway in the Burg which leads to a canal bridge, walk over that and a booth can be seen on the right.

Weather in the summer in northern Europe is very variable, it's really the luck of the draw!

Hi there,

The map


is actually a pdf-file. You can zoom in and out as much as you like. All embarkation points are marked with a grey boat.

Look over here for info on the weather:


Best regards,

Question for Sabrina. That is a good map. Where can you find out what the numbers on the map refer to? Is there a directory or listing of what the numbers on the map correspond to?

There are 5 places where you can get on a canal boat.

De Meulemeester -- Wollestraat

Gruuthuse -- Nieuwstraat

Georges Stael -- Katelujnestraat 4

Michielssens -- Huidenvettersplein

Coudenys -- Rozenhoedkaai

Daily 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The trip takes about 30 minutes., so it’s a great way to relax and give your feet a rest from walking on all those hard cobbled stone paths.
