A Weekend in Bruges, Belgium

Belgium, Brugge Guide (B): A Weekend in Bruges, Belgium

Let’s be honest, Bruges is definitely one of the most romantic cities in Europe which easily gets overlooked by its popular neighbor, Paris as well as Venice. Bruges is often called the “Venice of the North” with its crisscrossing canals which encloses its historic center. Whether you take a stroll during the day or during the night, romance will certainly be found in this quaint town as you stroll hand in hand.

It is also more than just a quick day trip. It is so much more beneficial to your health to slow travel, really enjoy the sights and take in the atmosphere. While Bruges definitely caters to the hordes of tourists who come in, you can find peace and serenity in the bustling little town. It’s definitely worth to take the extra time to explore the hidden gems tourists miss when they’re busy checking off their bucket list. 

Head to the Grote Markt and enjoy one of the most beautiful market squares in Europe and listen to the endless chiming of the clock tower!  ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
