Bruges Pocket Guide

Images Of Bruges

Thanks to its enchanting squares, medieval buildings and cobweb of canals, Bruges is like something out of a fairytale. Unsurprisingly, it is Belgium's most popular tourist destination. This is a city in which you can get totally lost, yet always find your way back to the centre thanks to the Belfry, the old tower in the centre of the city. As you walk around its streets, crossing canal bridges and letting the sound of trotting horses drown out your chit-chat, you will feel like you have stepped back in time.

    Overrated Bruges

    While everyone told me to go to Bruges, I found it super touristy with very little to actually see. Try Ghent instead :)

    Absolutely Beautiful

    The town is gorgeous - literally everything here looks like you stepped out of a time machine 100s of years ago. Stone and brick buildings, a beautiful town square, and horse drawn carriages a-galloping. Be sure to grab a map, otherwise you will lose yourself in the atmosphere.

    Insider Tip:Be sure to keep a close look out for the smallest alleyway near the main town square - it holds a great little bar. Try the house beer (Da Guerre). Delicious!

    Wonderful little place

    Bruges is a wonderful town. During the day it can be packed with tourist who just come for the day, but in the evening and at night is when this place is truly magical. It's medival vibe really comes out when the streets are empty which gives it an incredible feel.

    Insider Tip:Go to the local bars. It is a must
