“Town Center Bruge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

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.

“Go at night and miss the crowds !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Pleasant atmosphere , but very crowded overall. Recommend to spend the night as in the evening all the day trippers disappeared. Also train journey from Brussels and back was extremely full and lots ..and lots of people in both directions had to stand in the aisles

This area is so nice to walk around in. There are several lovely buildings like the Stadhuis and the famous Unesco Wold Heritage site belfy. There are some nice little shops and great cafes as well.

We walked all over Bruges. Enjoyed the sights and tours of the historic churches and buildings. Canal ride was very enjoyable along with riding bikes.
