Beautiful city. Only small, which is a blessing. Unspoilt, not cheap but worth it. Recommended hiring a bike as this is best way to get around the city. Very light traffic in the city centre with all roads having designated cycle lanes.
We visited Brugge to see the Christmas market and were only there for a day. However we thought the city was lovely but the market spoilt the centre for us. VERY poor market with few stalls mainly selling food, drink and the usual cheapy clothing...More
Absolutely gorgeous place! So busy with visitors this time of year!
The food, beers and chocolates were worth a delayed coach and ferry ride!
Spent 4 hours just walking around seeing the sights! Maybe more beers next time :)
I’ve been to Bruges once before and found it charming. This time however the Christmas markets were on which was disappointing. I come from Bath where the Christmas market is pretty high end. I almost felt embarrassed walking around looking at the ‘tat’ on sale....More
The Markets were underwhelming to say the least. There are only two small markets in 2 locations with very little to see or worth buying. There wasn't a great Christmas atmosphere. They didn't even play any Christmas music in the square. Just pop chart music....More

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 to see but a 3-4 hours Guided Tour should suffice for your first visit.

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

Beautiful city hope you enjoy it.
