“Beautiful Lake”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a lovely spot with a beautiful bridge - great for photos. There was not much else to do other than to walk around the lake, take some pictures etc. It might make a nice spot for a picnic if you have kids but it was a little cool for this when we visited.

“Nice but better places in Bruges to see”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

All tourists are led to the Minnewater Lake as if this the best place in Bruges. It is always very crowded (for Bruges) and there are much nicer places to visit (The Vesten, the St. Anna part of town)

“Go the extra mile and walk this Brugge beauty area”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

The Minnewater Lake and surrounding buildings have a lot of character. If you visit Brugge, you should go the extra mile and go to this part of Brugge too. It is beautiful, peaceful and breathes memories from a distant past. We really enjoyed this part of our walk through the Brugge streets and would definately to here again. So, don't just focus on the trotten path of the inner city of Brugge and broaden your walking horizons.

“Ok for a stop over”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Quiet place. Very touristy when the sun came out. Literally a lake and canal, some green area and a couple of cafe/bars. Good as a stop over point when cycling around the canal circling the city.
