A Walks in the Historic City Centre

A walk back in time into the medieval times, with breathtaking buildings and streets that still bare within them, the sounds of the past. Visiting the old city centre is the first thing to do when you go to Bruges. Markt, as the Belgians call it is a large open square with horse-drawn carriages and neat restaurants where you can have a taste of the city as well.

Peace and Tranquility at the Minnewater Lake

Close to the Bruges Central Station, the Minnewater Lake is offers a pleasant and relaxing stroll for those who want to take a rest and enjoy nature. With its small lake and the beautiful buildings on the water’s edge, the Minnewater park is a great choice if you just want to slow down a bit and have a peaceful moment, while enjoying the breathtaking natural scenery.


This idyllic old place with a village-like feel and beautiful gardens is in close vicinity to Minnewater Lake and the old city center as well, so it’s worth walking to. Beguinage is especially beautiful when the daffodils are in spring so you gotta visit it when in Bruges.

Cruise the Canals

Another way to experience Bruges is by talking a cruise on the city canals. You can take a boat trip from one of the 5 boarding points where a boat takes off every few minutes, from 10 am to 6 pm and enjoy the breathtaking Venice of Belgium.

A Sweet Chocolatey Visit

If there’s a place in the world where they have great chocolate that’s gotta be Belgium! And if you’re a chocolate fan like me, you cannot miss out a visit Bruges’ Old Chocolate House for the most amazing cup of hot chocolate you’ll ever have and a traditional waffle to go along. And then of course, The Chocolate Line Bruges for some delicious chocolate pralines.
