There are so many restaurants and bars with outdoor seating around the Markt. Great to relax and enjoy people watching after walking around.

There was a marathon event held here when we arrived, there no bus service going to this area. But in return there was this huge festive atmosphere in the area. In contrast, it was very quaint once all the people disperse and it back to...More

The Markt is easy to find, full of restaurants and history. You can take a horse and carriage or wander through the the Markt, reaching shops of all sorts. A fun place to spend some time

Floodlit at night, bustling with tourists in the day, Markt is fascinating on Wednesday mornings when the market is in full swing. Thronged with locals and tourists buying food from the many traders selling local produce as well as crafts and curios.

In April it’s not too crowded. Enjoyed sitting at a cafe with a view of this authentic medieval square. Like Charleston, Bruges became too poor to modernize- to our benefit.

In the centre of the market square, you get a number of "Pop-up" meal vans, I had been told by my "Holiday Manager" not to buy anything from the stalls, as they tend to cook meats too quickly around lunchtime, as a result you get...More

Always very busy with tours so try and visit at a quieter time or remember that just walk down one of the many side streets close by and Bruges becomes instantly more quaint and quiet. A beautiful square, just best visited when quieter.

Parking is very limited in side streets on parking meters. It's very easy to walk on the streets and it's the best way to visit all the nice and beautifull places : by walk or riding a bike!
