Discover and explore one of Europe's most beautiful cities with a personal local guide


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. We enjoy relaxing walk through this splendid medieval city, one of Belgium's crown jewels and world heritage. In no other European city is the feel and the look of medieval times so present as here on Bruges' peaceful canals and streets.

Major events in 2018:
BRUGES CHRISTMAS MARKET
November 23, 2018 - January 1, 2019

Itinerary

I will come and meet you anywhere n Bruges (B&B, hotel, train station etc. ) and we will explore the Old Town to include the Main Market Square, Burg Square, the Beer Wall, Church of Our Lady, Canals, St John's Hospital & Memling Museum (from outside), Gruuthuse, Beghinage, Minnewater (lake of love), Belfry Tower, Cathedral, chocolate workshop and much more. A 30-minute canal cruise is included (not available between Nov. & March). We 'll also have a small break at a quaint sidewalk café overviewing the canals and sample some of the best fresh Belgian chocolates.

I recommend including Tour #: 371812 for just an extra 20€ per person and taste the local flavours as we explore the Old Town.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Meet you anywhere in Bruges.
