I will be spending a week in Brugge this month, stopping at the Golden Tulip medici. I believe this is "slightly" away from centre.
Firstly, how would i get from the train station to the hotel.. I imagine we will be using public transport everyday, so what will be the best ticket to buy and where from?
We also would like a day out to a beach (yes, in winter!) so whats the best option? From reading, i guess train to ostend, and then take the coastal tram (is it in use in winter?!). How long does it take to do the full route, and how much is will it be?
Also, a day shopping would be good - say to Brussels or somewhere? What options are available for that? The rest of the time will be taken with chocolate and beer!!
