This is the very attractive lake at Minnewater park. It is really peaceful here so ideal for a break when visiting Bruges. There's the Beguinage which is also worth a look while you're nearby, and if the weather is fair you can have a drink...More

Fabulous lake area with lots of nice walks. Can get very busy with tourist groups, so come early or late if you want good photographs. Also has some nice buildings and bridges surrounding the lake.

What a perfect setting and lovely walk alongside the lake while visting Bruge in the spring. Was pretty quiet when we were here, however I would imagine it to be busier in peak times. Not to be missed.

Worth a walk to here when you visit Bruges, lovely space, quiet and just so pretty, the canal boat shows you near here to help you find your way on foot afterwards.

We came across minnewater by chance but I'm glad we did. It's beautiful. Only a small area but we'll worth the visit.

What a charming city in general. We were very impressed by the architecture and the surrounding nature. The lake is indeed an added bonus to the city.

The most romantic spot in the city. Great for a walk or picnic in the sun. Be sure to check out the ancient bridge over the canal

lovely place to stop for a drink after a walk to the southend end of the old town. Feel away from the hustle & bustle of what can be a busy (with tourists) town

This lake with its swans is a short walk from the main squares. I walked past it at night with a friend and the reflections of bridges and building were mirror perfect in the golden moonlight. We were so sorry our phones were flat so...More

More information on boat trips in Bruge. A friend of mine confirms that there are no boats on the Minnewater lake, the canal trips by boat do not normally start until Easter.
