“Lovely area”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Great place for peace and quiet after the bustle of Bruges, places to sit overlooking the river, lovely shaded tree lined walkway. You can get to the Railway station through this area.

“Small but beautiful”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

This is basically a lake with a small promenade along its shore. We visited it in the evening, there were maybe 10 people in total in the park at the time. And it was really peaceful and quiet.

There's this beautiful chateu/ old building bu the side of the lake which really made it worthwhile. Plus ducklings and swans which you can feed bread crumbs to.

It's really easy to get to from the train station - so it could be your first stop. All in all, worth the trip.

“Romantic, peaceful area”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We visited the Minnewater several times on our visit to Bruges, at different times of the day and night. It was so calming there, especially after the somewhat crowded centre of Bruges. The swans gather there and are lovely to watch. Very interesting buildings dotted around the lake.

Really charming, especially with the swans, the flowers in residential gardens nearby and the shade trees.

“Time stands still here”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

The Minnerwater park and the lake are beautiful to just walk in and around or have a picnic in the parks. Don't miss this.
