canal boat tours


We are going to be in Bruges on Saturday 6th April and want to start our day in the Markt (going up the Belfry, shoping etc).

We would love to do one of the canal boat trips we hear so much about. How do we get to the canal from the Markt? to the place where you get on the boats?

many thanks!!

In the Markt, face the belfry and then take the road on the left (Wollestraat) - you will get to the canal at the end of that road. There is a canal boarding point on the right just before the bridge, or over the bridge, turn left and left again and you have a second option. All the trips do the same loop, just start in a slightly different spot.

In addition: download the tourist map for free from the following website


All 5 embarkation points are marked with a blue boat. The ones nearest to the Market, described by Nettle, are less than 5 minutes walking from the Belfry tower.
