We walked past the lake by chance and it's a fairly pretty lake next to a fairly pretty park and with some fairly pretty buildings. It's fairly pretty and that's kind of it - Bruges isn't a big place so you might as well just let yourself accidentally stumble upon this fairly pretty place. Did i mention it's fairly pretty?

Lovely sight! Especially when the sun shines. It's worth the walk to view from the bridge side. A stroll on the park is also pleasant.

By all means stroll past it on your way to or from the lovely city centre. But the Lake of Love is just a dammed up square stretch of water. Don't go out of your way to see it and it's certainly no more romantic a setting than any other...in fact there must be dozens of more romantic spots in... More

Visited here in April this year and fell in love with it. Lovely walking through the park and the lake and scenery is fabulous. We travelled in a motorhome and stayed at a site just outside the city centre so only a 5 minute walk in. Going back this year for New Years Eve and to see Bruges in winter.

Of all the places we went in Brugge Minnewater Lake was certainly the most romantic. Big lakes and waterways and lots to see. Including ducks. Great for an afternoon stroll, nice views and especially on a warm day. Although beware many other people will have the same idea so it can get busy!

Perfect for a walk and some pictures, quiet, not very crowded, close to the train station, a good place to rest and admire the lake, the trees and the castle.

A lovely place to walk in the daytime and the evening. Well lit and safe. It is a nice area of the city in which to relax and take in the views away from the crowds. At night Bruges is so beautifully lit. Beware of the mosquitoes, of course! It is a shame the scenic house right by the waterside... More
