Owner description: The historic center of Bruges has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000 thanks to its status as one of the commercial and cultural capitals of Europe and its enduring Gothic architecture. The Belgian city center is cited as a great example of a medieval historic settlement, even while it has evolved over the years.

Europe and its love affair with city-squares! Beautiful architecture, typical of Europe, best enjoyed on a sunny day. One has the gorgeous view of the Belfry, and to its top one will keep on gazing. However the square looks over-commercialized, with an ice-skating rink and too many shops. Every now and then one can watch horse drawn carriages passing by on rocky pathways, reminding us, 80's-generation-people, of the Europe depicted in historical dramas.
All in all a good place to visit on a bright sunny day.

all pre-Christmas towns should be made this way.. the place is stunningly beautiful, particularly at this time of year when they add Christmas lighting to the already extraordinary architecture of Bruges.

My girlfriend and I visited in late November and stayed in a hotel that was only a block away from the historic town center. It was decorated for the Christmas holiday season and there were several vendors set up selling gifts, hot food (waffles, sausages, etc.), and Belgian beer. There was also an ice skating rink set up in the center. A must-see when in Brugge, truly a beautiful historic center with a lot of restaurants, gift shops (Belgian chocolate, Belgian beer, etc.), and tourists.
