It is well worth visiting this beautiful city. The architecture is varied . Every corner delivers an amazing view. The addition of canals make this place even more attractive. It is certainly a must if you love chocolate.

A large array of fine buildings spread through a number of beautiful squares and joined by narrow streets. It seems that no two buildings are the same, so the variety is exceptional.

Easy to navigate, small Xmas market in centre of town, used an excellent guide explaining the history of Belgium and Brugge. If you like chocolate or beer you will love this place. Very pretty with many tourists.

The place is associated with fighting, independence and freedom. The guide told us the stories of the past as you took a walk and admired everything around you. Indeed wonderful to walk the place of history.

Bruges is a historical important city. Walking through the often narrow street gives you a glimpse of a town in medieval times. On all these cobble stones hundreds of thousands ancestors walked, lived, suffered or partied before us. In town there are many many shops,...More

Had a great overnight stay in Bruges, it such a pretty city. I was disappointed the market was quite small and not all the stalls had been taken, but the ice rink and the overall area looked festive.

We have recently done a similar tour with Azamara and you need to factor in a minimum one hour travelling to and from Ostende where your ship is most likely to be berthed. There is, however, plenty of interesting attractions... More

You need to go Brussels South station (the same one as the Euro train). There are usually about 2 trains an hour but none of them are directly to Bruges. We took the Ostend train traveling to Bruges and the Brussels train... More
