Step into Old World charm in Historic Centre of Brugge. Once a medieval settlement, this quiet city center still features preserved Gothic buildings and was at one time considered to be a major commercial city, due mainly to its port. Walk the cobbled streets to find endless chocolate shops, pubs featuring doubles and triples, and a mix of architectural styles. View the historic city on a boat tour through the canals, or sit back during a carriage ride through the canal-lined streets. If you've seen the film "In Bruges," you may want to take a guided tour, which can pinpoint major locations from the film.

  • To visit Brugues is to take a step back in time. Several centuries back just a few hours from France! The visit is essential!

  • Beautiful day and spectacular at night. In the day time many people but at night absolute quietness. I take a boat ride that was super interesting
