I was been in Bruges last year (march 2012, even if I had to wrote august...)
the city is small but very original and rich of story!!
Minnewater lake is one of the most relaxing and romantic place i ever seen!!
Time seem to be stopped there
I would return there one day

“Calm and tranquil”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

A beautiful, calm and peaceful open space with meandering paths, lots of greenery and a lovely bridge over the lake. There was a concert and food festival being set up when we visited but this just added to the enjoyment as we strolled through the park.
Worth a wander through it.

“Maybe all the blossom in the lake made it look dirty? Nothing special.”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

I'm sure that this place could be beautiful but in the few days we were thee the poplar trees were losing their blossom and it was settling on the lake in a white film which made the water look very murky and dirty. There had also been a music festival and the clean up crews had managed to churn up half the grass and leave trails of mud. The swans and ducks are, swans and ducks - what else can you say. Not the first place I'd choose to go as there are so many beautiful buildings and squares that this was not a priority

“Minnewater Lake”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

A really nice view, when sunny, a nice park juste a couple meters away. Go across the bridge and juste relax in the park nearby.
