See the highlights of Bruges (length of tour is your choice)


Known as the Venice of the North, because of its peaceful canals, Bruges is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It was a justified motive that prompted UNESCO in 2000 to include the entire historical city centre on the World Heritage list. The current city boundaries still coincide exactly with those of the medieval city centre, and the spaces and structures that were so typical of Bruges in the past have been preserved. Walking along the maze of winding cobbled alleys and romantic canals, you imagine yourself to be in medieval times.

Special event in 2018
10 May - Procession of the Holy Blood in Bruges (http://www. bloedprocessiebrugge. be/)
29 June - WWI memorial programme: 3000 small craft will take to the water manned by 6000 volunteers who will each write the name of one of the victims of the First World War at sea along with other messages of peace.

Itinerary

A typical half-day Bruges city walk includes the major highlight: the church of Our Lady and the Statue by Michaelangelo (Monuments'Men movie); the Market Square with the Belfry and the Town Hall Square (Burg) with the Chapel of the Holy Blood. We shall stroll by the Lake of Love (Minnewater) and the peaceful Beguinage cloister. Optional 30-minute canal cruise (7, 5€pp)
