Came to Bruge as a day trip in early January. It was a dry day which certainly made the visit more enjoyable. The town centre is clearly old with the cathedral, belfry and churches to see as well as cafes and restaurants to eat and...More

You can walk all over the center and you can enjoy the typical buildings and historical places. Every corner has own history and story. Also foods are very good, you can enjoy the best beer and chocolate.

Bruge epitomizes the Old World. A picturesque city that's entirely walkable. One street is as lovely s the next. Get lost exploring.

My recent trip to Brugge was my fourth over a 30 year time period. Although the number of tourists has dramatically increased, the magic of this town remains - especially if one knows Brugge's history. With each visit I discover new aspects of this beautiful...More

An absolutely beautiful town. The walk from the rail station to the Markt is so lovely, the canals are beautiful and the streets are like something from a fairytale

The centre of Brussels is lovely but on a cold and windy day it is not so pleasant. Still, always good to stretch the legs
