Must see in both senses of the phrase. It is the beautiful heart of Brugges, somewhat overwhelmed by the cafes, and also the inevitable route you have to take to get anywhere.

I really enjoyed a couple of the cafes in the Markt (I had my anniversary dinner with my spouse in one), and some of the buildings there are delightful (Belfort, Historium, etc.). However, because of the time of year we visited, there were a lot of concerts and festivals happening, and in the evenings, the Markt was closed off entirely to foot traffic, which was really inconvenient and kind of inappropriate, I felt, for the high tourist season. I couldn't see it as many times as I wanted to, and I think the city of Brugge should rethink that, especially on a Friday night!

Bit like walking through a museum, not sure what one will find. From modern to old. Beautiful to grotesque. We are from Southern hemisphere & do not have the history of Europe has, so where interested in old. A bit shocked about the amount & variety of stuffed dead animals, as well as the human skulls. In our culture owning dead items is tapu & brings bad luck to owner. So was quite a cultural experience.

Spent many happy hours people watching while we tried nearly all the Belgian beers! There are so many to choose from. Had quite a few meals as well, all of which were delicious.
