Welcome to Belgium with this complete bruges Travel guide
This Bruges Travel Guide guides you through a picturesque town on the west coast of Belgium. The guide gives you a photo impression and tells you where to go in Bruges, recommends the best bars and restaurants and great hotels and accommodations to stay in this wonderful and charming Belgian city. Be warned: Belgium is famous for its speciality beers, and as I love them, many places focus on beer!
How to get to bruges (from AMsterdam)?
Bruges is pretty easy to reach from multiple destinations. If you are flying into Brussels Airport (Zaventem), you can hop on a train and be in Bruges. This will take you approximately 1,5 hours. If you want, you can easily combine your visit with Genth or visit the Belgian coastline.
If you are visiting from Amsterdam (or come from Rotterdam), you can also book an international train and hop off in either Brussels to take the train to Bruges or get off in Antwerp to take a train to Genth and change to your final connection to Bruges.
- What to do and see in Bruges, Belgium -
1 || Visit the Grote Markt / MARKET SQUARE
The ‘Grote Markt’ or Market Square is the heart of Bruges and therefore the perfect start for this Bruges Travel Guide. The square is surrounded by the typical cute houses and almost everywhere you go, you have to pass the main square. Go early as it gets busy. I would also recommend it when it is dark for contrasting pictures.
2. Stroll along the Bruges canals
Bruges is full of canals, that can’t be missed. If you want to navigate to some of the photogenic canal spots in Bruges, these are the places you have to check out for some Instagram-worthy shots.
