- This was our first time in Bruges and we really enjoyed walking around and window shopping, as well as looking at historic buildings in the city centre. Two days was just enough.Written September 27, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- They’re all beautiful, this one has a bit of holy blood as a relic which is guarded but you can go and look at it. Load of nonsense of course but - whatever! All the churches in Bruges are gorgeous.Written September 18, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Only a few minutes walk from the bustling city centre but worth the short walk. The pictures above this review tell a better story than I can but the horses head nearby is really unusual and clever.Written July 6, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is a great open space, busy with people and bikes.
It is a great meeting spot.
There are restaurants all around and an ATM.Written October 10, 2019
- This building looks like it belongs to Louis XIV with its baroque facade. The building is from the 1700's but insider there is a gigantic wooden mantelpiece from 1528. There is a small charge to visit but children are free.Written March 23, 2020
- Provinciaal Hof is an excellent piece of architecture. I stayed in front of the building for 10-15 minutes to grasp and discover all the details.Written November 5, 2021
- One of the old medieval gateways into the city of Brugge. Very impressive indeed. Immense structure.Written July 10, 2022
- From the 30+ windmills that were operating in the 16th century, only four remain today. They are situated near a walking/cycle path on the outskirts of the city and offer an alternative view of Bruges than the medieval cobbled city centre. One of the mills, the Sint-Janshuis Mill is open to the public. The path is bordered by a wide canal. However, the busy dual carriageway on the other side of the canal does ruin the tranquility somewhat, but is a reminder that modern day life continues in this historic city .Written June 30, 2022
- This is one of the four remaining city gates in Bruges. The gate is part of the second city wall. It is nice to do a bike tour on the city walls and visit the old city gates. Nowadays this gate is only used by pedestrians and cyclists.

- This is apparently the best-preserved of the four remaining city gates. It is not the pretties (visit Ezelpoort for some lovely views and photo opportunities) but is in a nice quiet area and is close to the windmills.Written October 31, 2019
- Constructed in 1821 as a purpose-built fish market to remove the smelly fish from the Markt, the Vismarkt still sells fish today. However, when we visited at the weekend only a small part of the market was in operation selling crafts and art work. Worth a look if you’re in the area but maybe not a special visit.Written June 9, 2022
- This is a lovely 19th century house, that you cannot miss while strolling through Minnewater Lake. The house's architecture is simple, yet beautiful.Written May 13, 2022
- This is one of the old gates for the original wall. This particular gate was the blacksmiths gate into the city. Well kept and well worth having a look at.Written September 5, 2019
- Poortersloge (The Burghers' Lodge) is a protected monument building at Jan van Eyck Square in Bruges. It is a beautiful building standing directly west of the Jan Van Eyck Statue and boasts a most impressive facade, well worth spending a few minutes to enjoy while spending time in this area of the city.
The building dates back to the end of the 14th-century when this location was at the commercial heart of the the city, an important point of international trade took place here. The exterior features a ornate facade adorned with statue figures as well as a slender tower. Make sure to find the famous 'het beertje van de loge (the bear of loggia) while viewing the exterior of Poortersloge as well.Written January 28, 2019
- Been to Bruges several times and only just heard of this. Located in the cellar of the Crown Plazza Bruges.
Head passed the hotel reception and you will see some stairs down to the ruins. You can just walk around and take in the atmosphere and read the info.Written February 28, 2020
