The Centre of Bruges is full of old and historic buildings with loads of stories to tell. Visited during the Christmas time and there was 3 Christmas markets and an ice rink in the central plain with horse drawn carriages taking people around. Lots to eat and drink including Belgian waffles, Belgian chocolate and beer.

Beautiful, friendly, good beer and food (at a price) and overall very scenic. Do climb the bell tower and take a canal trip.

Harry Waters had it right, this whole city is amazing. It feels like going back in time and walking past this place is so cool.

Very Charming town center in beautiful location. There's a number of restaurants nearby offering a typical tourist experience. Spend some time in the square and then find a restaurant around the side streets.

Spectacular, amazing place. Definitely a must see. Bruges is the most amazing place. Be careful of some of the restaraunts, they overcharge for pretty bad food.

Small city centre, so everything within easy walking distance, including the main square, where there is always something going on,- don't miss the Friet van in the main square, for the best chips ever. Do the boat trip around the city, you will see more than you can from the roads, and at 8 euros it is well worth it... More

Spent all day walking around this beautiful historic town. Took a boat trip on its canals - relaxing and delightful. Enjoyed a few pints at a local cafe - walked the street to find interesting little shops and eating spots - you will nor be disappointed

Very picturesque. Everything within close proximity so no need for transport. Lots of museums at 8 euro each so buy a 3 day ticket (20 euro) if you're there that long. The half hour boat trip along the canal is a must - ideally first of all, then seek out the various places referred to by the guide on foot.
