It's a fabulous place. Ignore those who say it is 'Disneyfied'; it has been well conserved and the town council (or whoever) have made a conscious decision to preserve the traditional architectural heritage. It's a small city and easy to get round on foot and fun to explore by bicycle.I'd happily revisit next week if I could!
Plenty for a young family to see and do. Plenty of nightlife for older children.
Bruges is a great destination for a short holiday. There is plenty to do and enjoyment does not depend on sunny weather. The canals, museums and art are all excellent. The entry prices are reasonable.
Great atmosphere, friendly people, good beer!
Quoting the movie In Bruges, "It's a fairytale city." It has the perfect combination of culture, food, architecture, urbanism, nightlife and chocolate!
This was our first visit to Bruges and boy we werent disappointed. It has something for everyone (especially shopaholics) If you love chocolate and history, then this is the place for you. So much to see and do and really, four days did not do it justice.It was one of the best holiday destinations we have ever been to.Will definitely visit again.
Haviing now visited Bruges three times we never tire of it's relaxed but at the same time, vibrant atmosphere.
Brugge is an inviting Medieval City, with stunning culture and beautiful surroundings. It is a delightful place to visit, with many attractions.
lovely atmosphere, so much to see and easy to walk around. buildings superb. plenty of places to eat and more shoe shops than we have ever seen elsewhere! beer good. Flemish stew better in Ghent though!
Beautiful location. Town is small enough to explore on foot if you are fit. We took my mother in a wheelchair - beware of the cobbles! The canals create a beautiful environment, old buildings in the town centre add to its atmosphere. A boat trip or a ride in a horse drawn carriage are great ways to see the town. Alternatively we saw many people getting round on bicycles and even segways can be hired. There are chocolate shops and souvenir shops everywhere as well as plenty of places to stop and enjoy a coffee and a cake or one of the many Belgian beers that are on offer. There are also plenty of places to visit including the belfry overlooking the main town square (fantastic views from the top). We really enjoed this destination and would go back again.
In 2014 I'll most probably go on (select the option you think fits best):
