We visited The Markt and walked around for quite some time. It is a beautiful area, full of life. It dates back to the 12th century, may be even earlier. The buildings are lovely and the place is full of shops, like cafes, restaurants, chocolaterias,...More

Was told Brugge had a wonderful city square. It has. I was there a day too early as it was getting ready for the Christmas festivities. Wonderful restaurants surround the market place and the mussels are great.

When you live somewhere in the US, you dont always realize how lovely other parts of the world are. Belgium is pretty and Brugges is especially lovely. Historic buildings, beautiful churches, lots of lovely cafes and eateries.
