    Bruges is so charming! It has something for everyone. Walkable. A taste of old Europe. Historic. Many fine places to eat, drink and enjoy.

    What a vibrant place to stop and stare. Lots of cafes and restaurants, a market on Wednesdays and plenty of culture to observe. Day and night the atmosphere here is wonderful.

    We didnt do the brewery tour but came for the tasting only
    We tried the so called flight with 6 beers to taste - was quite busy then already
    In addition we took the meat plattern (prices were higher than stated on the internet) for really just a thiny portion

    The next day we came a bit earlier and managed to get a seat down at the water to grap our favorites beers from the tasting again - was better priced as well

    All in all really worth a visit but quite pricey

    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.

    Beautiful spot near the Bruges train station. Easy to visit on the way to the old town, worth a stop by. Opportunities for photos on the bridge and along the river.

    This is a beautiful square housing the city hall. There tends to be more room to soak up the scenery and take some wonderful photos of the architecture.

    Very photogenic part of Bruges. Very busy in peak times of day. Best enjoyed earlier or later in day. Numerous cafes/restaurants around to relax in

    This has been updated with the inclusion of an 8 minute virtual reality experience, offered at an additional cost to the main tour. My personal feeling is that not only is this worth undertaking but that it offers more than the old Historium tour provides. this is because the virtual reality is giving you facts in addition to the exciting experience of being immersed in the changing Bruges landscape. If money was an issue, buy the virtual reality and skip the tour. The tour can still be fun, listening on your own audio headphones. There is also a very good viewing platform on the tour that allows you to see over the Markt and take some great photos.

    This tour required use of a headset rather than a tour with someone you could ask questions. Some of the exhibits and the chocolate statues were quite amazing.

    I wasn't too taken by some of the art work but the windmills along the route are certainly eye-catching.

    This is a brilliant museum that evokes memories of how we and our parents/grandparents lived. The different rooms can't fail to generate conversations of times past. Although a little distance from the main square it is worth the effort of taking a relaxed walk there.

    a long line along the northwest edge of the town. It’s a 20 minute or so walk from the center of town, but I would recommend it, particularly on a nice day.

    If you find a map of Bruges (which isn’t hard – they have excellent ones at the tourist information centers around town) you will see that it is essentially a circle surrounded by a circular moat, along with the canals. Imagine it as a clock and the windmills are along the moat around 1:00-2:00. This is still a large enough space that you can’t really see all 4 at once. There is also an old town gate around 3:00 that has a working drawbridge for boats/barges.

    We were there on a sunny afternoon. They are set in a large park and they are very picturesque. Apparently, only one is originally from Bruges – the others were rescued from other towns and villages. Some are not accessible – none were open during my visit, but I was there late in the afternoon and was more interested in the exteriors.

    This is a fun and free place to visit in beautiful Bruges.

    We went into this not expecting too much but our kids were interested so we gave it a try. The museum was interesting and cute (get the audio guide otherwise you’ll be reading a lot). The front desk staff could have been friendlier (I’m hoping the woman was just having a bad day—& that it got better—because she seemed very unhappy, and didn’t so much as smile when we bought our tickets; we tried not to let her ruin our experience though). We didn’t stay to have fries in the basement there though because the staff overall didn’t seem happy to have anyone there, so we went down the street to sit outside and enjoy some Belgium fries.

    This park is small though you can get some peace and quiet away from all the tourists. Take some food here and have a picnic.
