The walk around the lake doesn't take long but offers lovely views across it at various points and some nice photo opportunities.

Great place to while away an hour or two especially when the sun shines. Short walk from the centre of historic Bruges.

We enjoyed looking at the swans, the children loved the horses. It is a romantic place to have a drink or to have a bite to eat. It is a great location for weddings, we even saw one!

Just had a weekend experience of Bruges and visited the Minnewater lake/park as it was an area recommended by other TA's. The area is well kept and is set to the south of the main hustle and bustle. However if you are wanting to get away from the crowds and the 'dreaded' tourist, then don't go to Bruges. The place... More

A very picturesque lake between the centre of town and the train station. Great to walk beside, or take in the surrounding parkland, but it's no romantic picnic spot - coachloads of tourists, following and their tour leaders holding umbrellas aloft, will be marching back and forth. Perhaps you'll be one of them.

My husband and I visited Bruges last year during spring time. Minnewater Lake is definitely one of our favourite places there. Very romantic and peaceful place to be. Make sure you visit it when you are in Bruges.
