Brugge old town is not an old town that lost all the characteristics of "being old" and became a tourist depot whose salesmen only care about people's wallets. The architecture, the canals and the whole Flanders atmosphere has been preserved very well and you feel regret after every street you pass and do not walk through...so spend a night in... More

Brugge is beautiful. I saw no well known shops but lots of unique, individual places to inspire gifts. Lots to inspire the curious mind. We found Christmas shops, a Harry Potter shop and a whopping willow.

The city of Brugge is unbelievably well preserved in its medieval outfit. Brugge is the biggest tourist attraction in Belgium and this is no wonder, it is just gorgeous! Brugge is famous for chocolate and beer. We definitely had to buy some hand made sweets from Chocolatier shops. There were cookies filled with various berries and vast amount of chocolate... More
