“romantic.”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Wow, there was nothing to dislike about this corner of Bruges. The lake itself is small but the combination of beautifully arranged buildings, trees, benches and the lighting make it the most romantic spot in the whole city. We particularly enjoyed cycling around it in the late afternoon when the place is lit by the strategically positioned lamp posts, which gave it a more than special look.

“Lake of Love”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

If you are fond of swans in their natural environment against some ancient houses you may spend some half an hour watching them. You'd better not feed them as it may harm them. The swans are immediately drawn to visitors to plea for some bread. It takes effort to avoid temptation of feeding them. You may also have a chance of making your best photos with swans as they occasionally get out of the lake and enjoy staying by the pavement

“Peaceful park”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Minnewater Lake is on the outskirts of historic Brugge. It has a well shaded park with walking and running paths. Beware the bicyclists. It is a beautiful location for a peaceful stroll.

“Winter Wonderland”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

We were in Bruges in January this year and there had been a lovely large snow fall , The town looked beautiful as did the lake and walks around the lake . It was lovely to se all the birds being fed .
The lake was frozen at the time with the snow on the water looked beautiful .

“Beautiful spot”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

A really beautiful spot for a walk together. Lovely and removed from the city. Seem to be a very popular spot with locals too.
