FYI: 2013 winter stop for boat tours

Dear fellow DE's and regular forum repliers,

Please find below the winter stop dates for the 5 boat companies in Bruges:

- Venice of the North (on Huidenvettersplein): open daily until Friday 15 November 2013. Last boats at 17h00. However, when the weather should be bad, chances are this company will close the entire afternoon.

- Coudenys (on Rozenhoedkaai): open daily until Sunday 17 November 2013. Then, but only when the weather is nice, on weekends until the end of 2013.

- De Meulemeester (in Wollestraat): open daily until Monday 11 November 2013

- Gruuthuse: open daily until Sunday 3 November 2013. Then weekends in November and December 2013.

- Stael (in Katelijnestraat): open daily until Monday 11 November, but only when the weather is nice. Last boats at 16h00.

Should you need to find this information again in the following weeks, you can also find it in my Trip Lists:

Thank you!

Do you know- is there any chance that there might be a boat tour on a Saturday in January if the weather is good?

Hi,

Probably not. Last year boat company Gruuthuse was the only one that said it would open during weekends in January and February IF the weather would be nice...but he didn't say that this year....

Still enough to do though ;)

Kindest regards,

Sabrina

No, they're all exactly the same: same (amount of) boats, same price, same tour, same explanation during the tour....so you can choose the one that fits your itinerary best :)
