    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.

    Old bell tower at the heart of Bruges. Not a very long or difficult climb, although the stairs were rickety in places. Great views from the top and a nice close up view of the bell.

    Simply amazing! We did not come to the brewery for the tour but we did go multiple times for drinks and dinner.

    I was concerned the brewery might be a bit touristy but it is the complete opposite.

    The food they serve is all fantastic and all of the 4 main beers that they have are incredibly tasty. Even non-beer drinkers in our party enjoyed the beers.

    Their 11% alcohol dark beer is the only dark beer i've had that did not taste awful (I'm looking at you Guinness) and did not even have a very deep, unappealing taste.

    If you come for dinner, just find an empty table and seat yourself.

    This was a highlight of Bruges. Old does not begin to describe this place. You may or may not believe the relics are real but you have to appreciate the place.

    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.

    We loved this museum more than we expected to. It is small, well organized and not at all crowded. Obviously, one may not enjoy it if not into Dutch art, but our family is and one of my teens' was thrilled to be able to stand in front of a Bosch and Van Eyck for as long as he liked with no one obscuring his view or jostling for his spot. We went to a lot of art galleries during this European trip and this was one of our favourites.

    Very good museum containing what appear to be genuine articles for the most part. Nice combination of History & gore

    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

    It is possible to step inside this church and look at it without payment, however, if you pay then this allows you greater access into its depths. There is plenty of wonderful architecture and stained glass windows to admire.
