Bruge is a wonderful town close to Oostende Belgium, we were there just after Christmas 2012, the town was hoping with Christmas markets! We were only able to stay a day but next will stay longer. The town square has a large cathedral as do most in Europe! Very pretty buildings and cobbled stone streets. We tried to get into the "best hot chocolate"place in town but it was so crowded and small. The canals are very picturesque. Only problem is parking!! Park outside town and walk in.
