Great place to wander around and enjoy the Wednesday market. Loads of places to eat and drink. Lovely place to sit and enjoy the carillon from the tower in the evening sunshine.

If you're interested in history or architecture, Bruges is a treasure chest. There are so many beautiful neighborhoods that we couldn't cover them in 2 days. The town has worked hard to preserve its architectural history, so there are loads of great places to visit....More

Brugge is a wonderful historic toen in Belgium with their chocolatiers, eateries with wonder terraces, choices of Belgium beer and waffles. It is a place where you can relax and stroll around to have a wonderful day.

Hi! The Hotel name is Ibis Brugge Centrum. It is a part of the ACCOR Hotel group and you can book using their website. Do not confuse this hotel with another Ibis Hotel which is next to Brugge train station. Enjoy!
