Came as a couple, to end our Grand European Tour!! What a finale. Beautiful buildings, friendly locals, great food and the sunshine. Euro 50 for a carriage ride seems expensive, but each to their own. We just enjoyed walking around and around the narrow streets...More

This is really the heart of Bruges. The buildings are stunning to look at and, even though we went in peak tourist season, it really wasn't that busy compared to other European cities. Get some chips with mayonnaise (which really live up to the hype),...More

Brugge is full of great historic places and the Markt is one of them - it is well worth a visit and the shopping around adds to its character.

If you wonder how a square would look like in af fairytale, just visit Markt in Bruges. It’s so pretty and perfect that even Disney couldn’t have drawn it better. Remember iPhone or camera!

Belgium boasts a lot of fantastic squares - Brussels and Antwerp and Gent to say the least, but Brugge rivals them nicely. Highly recommended
