“Windmills in Brugge, Belgium”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2012 via mobile

Thanks to the bus station clerk and the bus driver we found the windmills. At first look I felt maybe they were pseudo mills. Once I realized they were the real thing, the location - my mind set was rewarded. Understanding the history also helps realize the location and work horse these mills were and are.

“art AND architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2012

Bruges is beautiful inside and out - look up at the frescos and around at the art work (eg Arentshof) A very compact city, so you can expend your energy wandering round the museums and galleries - especially if it's raining! Top places include: Groeninge for a range of Flemish art, especially the primitives ,Sint-Janshospitaal for Hans Memling, Arentshuis for Frank Brangwyn and Church of Our Lady for Michaelangelo, etc! Then there are frescoes in the Basilica of the Holy Blood and the Stadhuis...!

Tip: Buy either a Bruges city pass (48/72 hours) or, even better, a 15 euros museum pass which then lets you in free to any 5 museums/galleries - do the maths!

“Bruges Museum Pass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

If you are in Bruges for even one day, you will probably get your money's worth out of this pass. If you climb the Belfort and visit the Groening with it, already you will have saved money. It is a great deal! If you are in Bruges for a few days, you absolutely must buy this pass. It is not only a ticket to all the gorgeous art works in the city, but to a good many other kinds of museums. The lovely thing about Bruges is that they're mostly within walking distance of one another. The city centre is very compact.

“Top quality and excellent value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

For 15 Euros you can purchase a three day ticket to all of the Bruges Museums, which is excellent value. If time is limited make sure you visit St. Johns Hospital for the Memlings and the Groeninge Museum which has an outstanding collection of early Flemish art. Look out in particular for Hieronymus Bosch's 'Last Judgment' and the 'Madonna and Child' by Rogier Van der Weyden.

“FANTASTIC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

Bruges and art go togheter as cream on a pie, around every corner there are things to see and to visit, Bruges is a relatively small city, but has places of interest every 50 m throughout the city
