Wonderful museums, with beautiful artworks, and historic sites, compact city and easily walkable. We ate well but too many restaurants offer the same tourist menu, many close in the evening (including it seems all the vegetarian ones) and others are open one night but not...More
Four of us visited in late November - stunning late autumn sunlight on beautiful architecture amongst quiet canals. We booked one of the horse drawn buggies from the market square - and used the route to walk afterwards. You cant go home without trying the...More

great atmosphere & historic buildings that are well maintained.many good quality restaurants that have good menus with some have burning logs in fireplaces for stunning effect also many curiosity shops
we went here on a weekend mini cruise for weekend

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.
