“Beautiful area to walk around”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This area is so nice to walk around in. There are several lovely buildings like the Stadhuis and the famous Unesco Wold Heritage site belfy. There are some nice little shops and great cafes as well.

“Great walking city”

We walked all over Bruges. Enjoyed the sights and tours of the historic churches and buildings. Canal ride was very enjoyable along with riding bikes.

“Beautiful at Christmas”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

With or without Christmas this place would be well worth seeing - it's beautiful, like virtually all of Bruges. I was a little disappointed with the Christmas markets in the square though, there weren't nearly as many as I'd hoped although you could say that quality made up for quantity; who wants to see 10 of the same stall?

Lovely people, pretty grim weather, beautiful buildings.
