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.

    Deservedly a UNESCO World Heritage Site!

    Although Bruges is stunningly beautiful, it is crumbling under the enormous amounts of tourists. Thanks to its compact size, the magnificent city centre can easily be visited on foot. Recommended stay: 2 nights minimum.

    Charming walkable medieval city with lovely canals and architectures

    Brugge is a really cute little city with lots of historical charms. Although it can be a tag touristy, i really enjoyed looking at the beautiful architectures and the canals. They also have some great museums if that's your thing. It's very easy to get around on foot, which is the best way to explore a city anyway. Chocolate and beer lovers will feel like they are in heaven.

    Insider Tip:Go to the top of Belfry to get a glimpse of the beautiful city. The St. Ann area is really cute and peaceful if you want to escape from the crowds of tourists. Sample belgium beers at 2be. Get chocolates from Dumon. Waffles and belgium fries are a must!

    My favourite city in the world.

    Cannot beat the romance the city exudes at night! One of the most beautiful cities anywhere in the world.

    Insider Tip:Take the In Bruges Free Walking Tour, it's great fun! Also, stay at Snuffel over any other hostel - the nicest staff and the most cosy hostel in Europe.

    The city itself is so beautiful. There are so many things to see, from the architecture, the bars, museums, to an excellent harp concert at Mariastraat.
