Overview

The most romantic and adventurous way to discover Bruges is undoubtedly by hot air balloon. Bruges Ballooning offers, in exclusive co-operation with the city of Bruges, balloon flights over the centre of Bruges. Daily departures at sunrise and 2 hours before sunset. A one-hour balloon trip takes you over the city of Bruges, and it's wonderful surrounding castles and fields. Champagne and hotel pick-up are included.

My daughter and I did this together and we had an amazing experience. From take off to landing, it was perfect. Christophe was an excellent pilot and guide. The city of Bruges and the Belgium countryside from above was almost magical. Would do this again!

Take this trip. It's magical. I've been up in a ballloon six times and this was among the best. Floating over Flanders and the city of Bruges is just marvelous. It's also the most reasonable balloon ride I've been on. Bring your camera!
