The historic center of Bruges has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000 thanks to its status as one of the commercial and cultural capitals of Europe and its enduring Gothic architecture. The Belgian city center is cited as a great example of a medieval historic settlement, even while it has evolved over the years.

When visiting my daughter in Bruges, I had a first-hand chance to walk around the historical 'down-town' area of Bruges. Despite, busy ... busy ... busy with many tourists from around the globe, a very enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.

Bruges is lovely - do the horse carriage trip €50 total and the canal trip €8 each first to get your bearings. Lovely food, great beer and outstanding history with the buildings to match.

The sun was shining and the people were out and about in the hundreds. The area is a good place to watch the happenings and there are great views of the buildings. A good place to spend an afternoon.

Loved this place. Just sit at some outside cafe and gaze at the various historic buildings all around.. Every building has a story to tell. Beautiful is a small word for this place. Quite extravagant.

The square is surrounded by historic buildings and restaurants. As so ofetn found it is perhaps better to select a restaurant just away from the main centre and plenty abound

Hi! The Hotel name is Ibis Brugge Centrum. It is a part of the ACCOR Hotel group and you can book using their website. Do not confuse this hotel with another Ibis Hotel which is next to Brugge train station. Enjoy!
