These affordable, 30-minute boat tours follow the same routes and offer commentary in several languages. But because they’re incredibly popular with visitors, don’t be surprised by long waits in line. « less

Bruges is a beautiful city with wonderful historical buildings and a great deal for the visitor to do. There is a tourist bus where the commentary tells you about the history and basic information about the historic centre.This runs from the Markt Square hourly. There are also horsed drawn carriages which is a romantic and interesting way to see the... More

By all means cycle from Bruges to Damme (about half an hour one way). And when in Damme climb the 200 and so steps but.... this is not for the weak-in-the legs. The steps are short and the wobbly cord and the (sometimes) lack of a railing right to the end of the stairs make the coming down hazardous. The... More

The food in Brugge is mostly overpriced and the menu at every restaurant is the same. On the recommendation of a life long resident of Brugge, since 1930, whom we met in the street while looking for the folk museum, we took the boat from the north of Brugge to Damme. The boat is a charming old paddle wheel that... More

We were served coffee and cakes on our trip up the canal, passing quite a few windmills on the way. A pleasant way to spend 45 minutes.

A very relaxing and peaceful trip up the cannal to Damme. It takes about 30 minutes and is not very expensive. Damme is a very beautiful place to walk around and have some lunch before returning to Bruges. Would recommend as a visit to do.

Really not worth the money, take a boattrip inside Brugges instead. This boattrip only go on a straight line to Damme...

Firstly may I point out that many of the reviews that have been written have been wrongly placed for this attraction - which is NOT one of the small boat trips around the canals of Brugge. This is the reviews for the Paddle Steamer boat trip along the canal to Damme. Ok now I will tell you that it was... More

It's a thing you have to do, get on that boat and just sit and relax. Enjoy the green and peaceful environment. Fun with children, to watch the ducklings and birds along the river side.

We opted for the return trip @ E9.50 for over 65's. There are five trips each way per day, seven days a week from April to October. All details at www.bootdamme-brugge.be. You can opt to walk/cycle one way (space for bikes on the boat) which will save about E3 on the price. The canal is very straight, so you may... More
