Such a pretty waterway surrounded by historical buildings, and quaint bridges. Bird life is pretty too. Lots of photo opportunities - would love to see it in the spring.

We met on valentines day 40 years ago but it still had the view to revive the romance. The end of the lake is the best, quiet and tranquil.

This is a must to see, all the swans and such peacefulness surround this water way. It was good to go in February as its not so busy and you can take your time going round the water.

We went to Minnewater Lake on the first day of our visit to Brugge and fell in love with the place.
On the next day, we went back again and spend another hour or so there!
The swans and ducks were swimming peacefully in the lake, courting sometimes. The view of beguinage by the lake is fascinating, and every corner or angle of the surrounding is picturesque that we could not stop taking pictures.
We would definitely visit the lake if we go to Bruges again.

More of a big pond than a lake but very nice with the churches and park around it. At night the lamps reflect off the lake and during the day hens will seek you out.
