Girls Minicruise - 1 day in Bruges Friday 24th February

Hi all,

We have booked a P&O minicruise to Bruges departing the UK 23.2.17 and returning 25.2.17. We will have a full day in Bruges on the Friday and are keen to have a lazy wander, interspersed with visiting a few nice bars, grab a meal etc.

I know it sounds daft but we're not all beer drinkers and was hoping there may be some cocktail / wine bars open during the day which we could visit? I've favourited a few from TA but they don't mention if they're open during the day.

Also keen to see Madonna & Child sculpture - is it walkable from the centre of Bruges and is there a fee at all?

Thanks so much :)

You can see the Michelangelo free of charge, but the rest of the church is under renovation: https://www.visitbruges.be/en/onze-lieve-vro… - you can also see on a map where Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk is located, not far from the centre of Bruges which is only small anyway.

I think wine bars tend to open at around 16:00 hrs but cafés (which of course serve alcohol) are open all day. Belgian bars/cafés don't only serve beer!!

Hi

Many of the wine / cocktail bars do not open until the late afternoon:

Wijn Bar Est - 16:00

Groot Vlaaenderen - 17:00

Blend, a wine bar in Kuipersstraat says it opens at 11:00

You could try 2Be - it has the Beer Wall, mainly beers but they do do a few wines, including a very nice sparkling Belgian wine, open from 09:30

B.in an upmarket bar and restaurant, is open from 11:00. It is in the historic Oud Sint Jan, opposite the church with the statute of the Madonna and Child.

Thank you all! 2Be was one we'd seen which sounds good! We like a sparkling wine!
