Take a stroll through the beautiful greenery and across the bridge over the lake. It's breath taking and so romantic.

You will find this lake, nearby to a monastery, on the edge of town. It has a lovely view all along the lake, with a few bridges that cross it, to take those lovely scenic type photo's from. You have a beautifull tree lined walkway that leads away from the lake, that takes you to the edge of the town,... More

The lake is gorgeous - very picturesque and such a peaceful spot. We took a picnic and sat by the lakeside for half an hour or so just taking in the view. Not far from the station and a little way out of the main centre of Bruges, but definitely worth finding, this is a stunning, tranquil spot.

Steeped in history and folklore, the waterways, bridges and parks around Bruges are well worth a visit. I walked for 1-2 around the lakes and canals, soaking up the silence and taking time to frame some wonderful photos. This would be a great place to read and relax if you find yourself with sometime spare or need to get away... More

Well worth a visit on a nice day. This is a very nice walk and you can also get a horse and carriage ride near by. Beautiful scenery.

Nice to get away from the centre and just sit and relax in the park for a bit. Very pretty and peaceful. You could take a picnic if so inclined. It's a shame the restaurant isn't open as it's in a lovely position. Would be great to take a bike and ride through their many paths in the park perhaps... More

This is a lovely tranquil & peaceful spot in the grand city of Bruges. Any visitor to the city should make every effort to see it, and so appreciate the calm and dreamlike state of the Lake and its surroundings. Quite simply, a lovely place.

The Minnewater Lake is inside the miniwater pak. It´s a beautiful place for walking, for sitting and only for just breathing a fesh air. This was the first place I visited in Brugges, and it gave me a very nice and amazing impression of the city.
