Sightseeing in Bruges

The city of Bruges is named after its many bridges (in Belgium: Brugge) and canals which run through the city center. It is one of the most picturesque cities of Belgium and, therefore, welcomes many visitors. Bruges is small and can be easily seen in one full day or in a weekend if you want to take it at a slow pace and enjoy some of its local cuisine. The city of Bruges does not have many famous landmarks, but the city still has many medieval buildings and the old town center consists largely of historical buildings. Combine this with canals, bridges and many churches and you will find Bruges to be one of the most picturesque towns if Belgium. Some of its sights include the Belfort belfy tower, the city hall and its windmills.

Belgium people like to take their time for food and drink and Bruges is no exception with many small places which serve good food and a proper pint such as the local beer Brugse Zotte (meaning: Crazy man from Bruges). For something cultural and entertaining visit the chocolate museum and taste some as well. When it comes to night life there are many clubs and bars around town. The city of Bruges was made famous by the film 'In Bruges'.
