A beautiful spot, even in November. A short walking distance from the main square and well worth a visit

We were lucky in that autumn was as late here in Belgium as it was at home and we caught the best of the colours on an otherwise grey and misty day. Perhaps not worth a visit entirely on its own merits but with the Beguinage one side and the canal the other, there's plenty else to see.

Quite green park with romantic feel.. good for a walk during day when you can see around.. and its next to the old city of bruges which is amazing.

I live right at the end (the horse fountain) of this sometimes magical place. It's not always 'ooh' and 'aah' beautiful of course. Even though it keeps its charm all the year around, sometimes the Minnewater swan area, the lake with the castle and the park behind the castle are truly magical. You just have to be a little lucky. I personally love this area the most when the first flakes of snow have fallen. For a more romantic experience, it's better to make an evening walk. The lighting is just beautiful when it's dark. The street along the swans is also the resting point for the horse rides in the city, watch out where you walk (you don't want to step in a puddle of horse pee) ^_^

Oh and be aware that this street is full of tourist traps, the prices are generally much higher than in the rest of the city. You'll have more bang for your buck in the Sint-amandsstraat or any of the little side-streets (like the Kemelstraat). For genuine lace, you should rather head to the back of the Belfry tower. Got more questions? Don't hesitate to ask! :-)
