“Busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

Brilliant architecture on all sides of this square. It's very very busy at the weekends but early in the weekday mornings up its a little quieter and perfect for taking photos without tourists in the way!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We spend a few hours wandering round the shops and stalls around the edge of the square and around the side streets. The buildings are beautiful, and the Belfort towers over one side.

There are lots of restaurants and cafes around the edge of the square- most of them have set menu deals which are far more reasonable than eating a la carte, and the food is generally pretty good.

Definitely take a camera- the views are great!

As the name suggests it is the market square in the historical centre of the town... this is also where your connection from the railway station would drop you to and where your Bruges experience will start
