Brugge is full of beautiful character. Clean, compact, history all around. The sights, sounds, atmosphere is elegant yet accessible. In the City Center it I is busy; but walk a few minutes and you're surroundedristine architecture set alongside fairy tale canals.

A wonderful place to spend a day or more walking through the narrow streets crossing the many canals. Streets are full of horse drawn carriages and the sound of the horses hoofs on the cobblestone streets is so charming. Well worth the trip.

We stopped in lots of chocolate stores and bought a lot of chocolate. We also stopped in a "beer-of-the-world" type shop. Amazing selections. Then of course, we stopped... More

Very pretty square. It does get crowded with tourists, but is well worth hanging out, taking in the view, and enjoying some fries.

The whole of the town is fantastic and continues around the many squares and streets. The whole place is is just a step back in history of building and pretty as well.

We loved wandering the streets of this beautiful city. At every twist and turn there was something more to see. The Markt with its historic buildings is awe inspiring when you think of the age and quality of buildings. I had no idea just how wealthy Brugge had been and I only wish we had more than one day. I'm... More

A very pretty spot for taking pictures. If you are there at 6pm you can hear the song that the church bells play which was very pretty also. Lots of places to eat in this area also.
