We don't have anything like this culture in Australia, so its always good to see it when you travel and this was no exception, the main centre of town, the architecture is outstanding and worth taking lots of pictures, the whole town is amazing and wished we had more time, we did a day tour from London so we only...

Having been here once for a few days stay, it was ok to visit more briefly from our cruise ship. We walked all around, it was a free day for 3 of the art museums so we got to see the Groeninge Museum without an entrance fee. There are lots of things to see/do here: Diamond Museum, Chocolate Museum, French... More

Lovely old town with beautiful old buildings. Easy to walk round and you've also got the canal boats. Well worth a visit. The beers are fantastic and if you like chips, this is the place for you.

Everything is in close proximity. There is an underground parking which is just over €8 for 24hours, which, if you are from the UK, it is VERY cheap! nice choice of restaurants too and lots to see! Would recommend the boat yours around the town centre that lasts 30minutes. Guides are exceptional and really informative, and it is also good... More

Everytime i remember Brugge, there's a Harry Potter's soundtrack in my head. Brugge is a beauty, medieval city u should visit at least once in ur life. Something i dont really like about Brugge is..... restaurants r so expensive !

Take time here. The is a great deal to do and see. Buildings, historic sites, canal boats, city tours, eateries - get away from the marketplace id you're looking for bargains.

Bruges is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Every street has its own charm. There is plenty of sights and Museums to fill a long weekend. It is the land of beer and chocolate so heaven for me. It is expensive though so factor in plenty of spending money.

it is not possible to enter any street within the old centre of Bruges and see any ugliness, litter, decrepitude or graffiti. All is beautiful and well preserved although a living and vibrant city. a complete joy
