    Interesting set of statues of the four horsemen of the apocalypse in a beautiful little square. With the added bonus of actual horses trotting past every so often.

    Part of the main shopping area in the city, and with a few nice restaurants and cafes, it's a good place to stop by.

    This is an historic gate to the city, an impressive structure. We stopped here on our walking tour of the city and took some photos.

    You can not miss this tall monument in the center of the Markt, surrounded by colorful flags. There are benches nearby that everyone's tired feet will truly appreciate. Very pretty area to people watch from.

    Brugge is a lovely place, well worth at least one full day's visit. The Papageno statue is just one of many wonderful sights. Not to be missed is Michelangelo's Madonna and Child in the Church of Our Lady.

    Nice statue at the big bridge, near the main (Markt) square. Very detailed and quite well preserved.

    If you visit the Burg Square, you might see a statue just on the other side of the river. It is of Frank Van Acker who was the Mayor of Bruges and a Belgian member of Parliament. It’s a cool photo opportunity – the statue is just a bust of his head but it’s well done.

    Statue of a prominent painter with a paint brush in one hand and a picture in another. The statue is in the center of the square which is at the old harbour. You will find interesting buildings surrounding the square area. The toll house is one of the most ornate.

    Such a picturesque little spot, this is great to get some good photos.

    Here you can get views of the canal, church, statue and a quaint little house.

    Lovely experience in a busy part of Brugge. Enjoy some refreshments as you marvel the works of this statue.

    The artist couple Stefaan Depuydt and Livia Canestraro created a bronze statue of two lovers in the centre in Bruges in 2002. Located near the Stadhuis (city hall), where local couples get married, the statue has the word love in many languages etched into the base.

    The Monument to Guido Gezelle is in a fairly nice area of Brugge, although not an exceptional spot! There are a few cafes and eateries around the place. We came across this spot quite by chance while wandering the streets of Brugge. We did not know anything about Guido Gezelle prior to "meeting" him in this way.... We now know he is a very important Belgian poet. He was a Roman Catholic priest and great poet. He tried to make the Flemish language a better one, independent of the Dutch language. A great man indeed.

    Whether it is an accurate representation or not, it is a statue that I find beautiful and come away from - every time - with a sense of wonder at the talent of someone who has created it. I would never leave Brugge without visiting this work of art which intrigues me.

    I did my homework before my visit so knew that Maurits Sabbe was a Flemish Writer.
    The bust stands in an attractive area of Bruges ( but then ALL of Bruges is attractive) overlooking the canal and area where the swans and ducks gather.
