“Just Gorgeous. Take your camera!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

It's a really beautiful setting with some great photo opportunities. On a sunny day the contrasting colours are beautiful. It makes a great contrast to the hustle and bustle of town.

“Great scenic spot in Brugge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

The Minnewater is my favorite area in Brugge. This is where you can take advantage of wonderful photo op's, visit the Beguinage, and lots of options of great restaurants for an easy or in depth meal. You can also catch a horse drawn carriage from here for a tour of the city.

“Pretty but also pretty overrun with tour groups.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

I suspect this is a very beautiful part of town early and late but don't expect a quiet lunch there - tour groups were marched through every few mins on the main paths.
Walk a little to the more southern end (this is a really small park) and there are some quieter areas on the grass down by the canal for a picnic and break from the hordes.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

The Minnewater lake was a short walk for us and we took a picnic for our lunch here. Very pretty with lots of ducks and swans and the old sluice gate to the city.

“LOVELY Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Lovely area to take a stroll, watch the swans and ducks, sit and stare at the lake. a definite must see in Bruges. If you take the horse & carriage tour, they usually stop in this area for about 5 minutes to feed the horses, gives you a chance to wander about and get a feel for the area. Lots of birds so watch out for poop from above and on the ground
