On regular days there is more than enough parking space in Bruges, there are a number of underground parking facilities, and you can park in the street. Every now and then we have a serious lack of parking space, when there is something rare / special going on.

On www.interparking.com - Find a parking lot - Search for a particular parking - Belgium - Bruges

you can get an overview of the underground parkings in Bruges.

Select "Brugge" to get the info on the two car parks behind the train station. For some reason they haven't put it in "Bruges"...don't ask me why.

Here is the parking map of Bruges:


But.....save yourself some trouble and simply park in the STATION parking for the duration of your stay. It's the largest parking and one of the cheapest (cheapest ones are behind the train station, 2 euro per day). It's easy to find and near one of the access routes into town.

The underground parkings in town are 8,70 euro per day. I wouldn't recommend parking in the street, as Bruges might be difficult to navigate through for a first time visitor (lots of one-way streets) and you'll have to use your parking disc (max. 4 hours).

STATION parking can be found in front of the train station, the price is 3,50 euro per day. It includes a free return bus ticket into town, which you can use to reach your hotel.

Bus 4 or 14 stops on Jan van Eyck square, which is just a short walk from Europ hotel. It would take max. 15 minutes to get from the train station to your hotel, using one of those buses.

To get your free bus ticket you'll have to stop by the ticket shop of the bus company DE LIJN, which can be found in front of the train station, on the square where all the buses leave from.

If you require directions upon arrival feel free to visit the small tourist office inside the train station. Opening hours:

Monday - Friday: 10h00 - 17h00

Saturday & Sunday: 10h00 - 14h00

Should you have any additional questions before leaving, you're welcome to contact me at any time.

Kind regards,
