Picturesque lake with beautiful swans., ducks, and other birds. Surrounding buildings make it a picturesque spot and a good place to relax in between touring all the attractions Bruges bias to offer.

If you suddenly need some space / time out head here and watch the many swans in a lovely water setting. There are eateries here too.

This is a lovely peaceful park. Lovely grounds and lake. Makes for a lovely walk in the afternoon. And there is history that surrounds the lake. Many legends and myths.

Brugge is beautiful all round, no mistake. But I have to say the description of the lake, more of a pond! Picturesque but tiny really

Sinéad and I passed by the lake, on our way to the train station, one day. It was quite busy with tourists (so many selfie sticks...), but it is a very peaceful place, and a really pleasant place to go for a walk. This is...More

A really nice place not far from the city centre. Maybe a ten minutes walk. It's worth it . Good environment. And if you love swans you're in for a treat.
