We walk through the Minnewater Park while on our way to the city center and am so glad we did. What a beautiful green gem of a park. If you have a few minutes to spare this gives you a chance to rest a bit from all the museums, shopping and churches. Be sure to take a while and watch the swans swimming along the canal.

The area is very popular with all the swans and the ducs on the water. This is also the place where the touristic coaches are making a stop to give the horses a rest and food and water. There are a lot of restaurants and also small shops selling lace. In summer it might happen someone is making lace in front of the shop.
On the bridge at the end you can make some very nice pictures with the belfry in the background. In the close neighborhood there is also the beguinage where you can make a quite stroll.

Minnewater Lake is just a short walk from Brugge Railway station. It's a really nice area to walk around in or just sit and take in the scenery.

There's plenty to see so use it as a place to rest after all the walking around!

We walked through Minnewater Lake on the way to our hotel when we arrived and decided it was so lovely we went back the next day. In the hub of the city this park is tranquil and a lovely place to walk and/or chill. We sat in the pub gardens on the bank of the river having a drink and watching the world go by.
