Welcome to BrugeS and this complete city guide
This Bruges City 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. Be warned: Belgium is famous for its specialty beers, and as I love them, many places focus on beer!
The city is relatively small and it is easy to have a stroll through the city. No public transport card needed! As we came from the Netherlands, we took a train to Bruges. Oostende-Bruges has an airport, however, it might be cheaper to take a flight to Brussels and take the train from there.
DO & SEE
1. MARKET SQUARE
The ‘Grote Markt’ or Market Square is the heart of Bruges and therefore the perfect start for this Bruges City 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 canals
Photo 1: Apartment Het Blekershuys will guide you to the famous view of the canals in the front and the tower in the back.
Photo 2: Jan van Eyckplein to photograph into the other direction.
Photo 3: Dijver, walk along the Dijver and end at the Rozenhoedkaai.
Photo 4: Rozenhoedkaai, where the touring boats come and go.
3. HALVE MAAN BREWERY
We haven’t done this one, but if you want to learn more about craft beer and the most famous brewery in Bruges, I would definitely recommend taking a tour through the Halve Maan Brewery. The views are apparently very nice as well!
4. Sint-janshuis molens
The Sint-Janshuis Mills are slightly out of the city and are especially nice during sunset.
