Really charming, especially with the swans, the flowers in residential gardens nearby and the shade trees.

The Minnerwater park and the lake are beautiful to just walk in and around or have a picnic in the parks. Don't miss this.

Very calm, very serene. You can be there for a family picnic, in the quieter areas otherwise you can go sit and see world go by. It has good views. If you love photography, it is one of the place you should definitely see.

Minnewater lake, or as it is called The Lake of Love is an easy walk from the centre of Bruges and it enables a period of peace and tranquility. From the bridge the view is serene and beautiful.

This park is serene and calm. There is something about an oasis of greenery and tranquility in the middle of a city that just grounds you. Love lake, or Minnewater Lake, is just such a place.

We went past Minnewater lake several times on out visit. It is lovely but lots of other tourists in the day. My favourite time was about 9at night when it was very tranquil and romantic when stood on the bridge looking back into Brugge.

Before visiting Bruges, I anticipated a large park and lake to walk around, based on other reviews and blurb. Minnewater is certainly picturesque and worth a stroll, but not the out of town experience one might imagine. To get out of the city I would recommend hiring a bike instead!

How lovely to exit the train station, cross the street, and begin your walking tour of Bruges with the beautiful scenery of Minnewater Lake and park. Nice to walk through, but you're probably not going to linger for long because there is so much more to see.
