Bruges is place to see stunning, historical buildings!
The Markt Square is jaw-dropping, with the majestic Belfry tower looming over the beautiful and impressive Provincial Palace.
Blog posts entitled ‘A day trip to Bruges’ and ‘How to spend 24 hours in Bruges’ are everywhere and plentiful.
If art’s your thing (sadly not mine), check out the Groeningemuseum for a fabulous collection of Flemish Primitive and Renaissance paintings.
Having served as a marketplace since the year 958, the Markt Square is steeped in history!
Grab some Belgian chocolates from a nearby Chocolatier and perch on a bench to take it all in.
Admission is 8€ per adult and the museum is open Tuesdays to Sunday from am to 5 pm.
Bruges is beautiful, there’s no doubt about it, and some of the most beautiful streets are a little harder to find than the popular tourist hotspots.
Our tour guide spoke four languages and provided us with an interesting history of the city as we went – 8€ well spent.
