“Have a beer in the square and take in the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Every afternoon we came to the square to sit and people watch and take in magnificent Bruges over a beer. It was my favorite part of the day - just sitting and being surrounded by loveliness. The town is so beautiful, and this is a great way to take it all in.

“Little Venice - see and compare for yourself !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Bruges is very "walkable" : everything is nearby, not many cars, lots of bikes and tourists.
Amazing buildings, nice boattrips (do it !), lots of wonderful places to sit, eat, drink.
Nice shopping (chocolate and clothing).
Just taste history and the whole cosy atmosphere.

“Bruges”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

The lack of traffic and the whole central area are hard not be enchanted by.
A downside would be that in the summer it must be overrun with tourists
