“The Venice of the north” is the nickname that Bruges received, a charming small town located in Belgium surrounded by water canals and colorful medieval infrastructure. It is pretty easy to fall in love with this fairytale-like town that has been named a UNESCO world heritage. There’s plenty of activities to do, even if you have a short itinerary; this is the perfect place to stop by due to its size; it’s quite easy to walk around it. The city is well known for many things, the canals, the infrastructure, the many chocolate stores, the waffles, and its history. In today’s article, I’ll talk about my experience visiting what is, for me, the most charming city in Europe, a place that has to be on your bucket list.
Walkthrough the city
When I first arrived at Bruge, I couldn’t wait to walk around this town, that was the first thing I did, and I believe it should be the first thing for you to do. Take your time and take a walk through this beautiful destination, as I mentioned before, this is not a big town so you won’t have to walk long distances. You can walk on your own, or you can choose a guided walking tour that I highly recommend as you would get more in-depth information about the town’s story. By walking through the city, you’ll get a better overview of the places you’ll like to go afterward; you can also take a tour on a horse-drawn carriage if you don’t enjoy walking. Either way, I’m sure that you will enjoy everything that this town has to offer.
Go to Minnewater Lake
Minnewater lake is every nature fan’s dream. It’s located downtown, and it’s the perfect place for a romantic walk with your significant other or your friends. You can take a waffle with you if you don’t have a lover and enjoy the gorgeous lake and trees surrounding this space. If you arrive at Brugges by train, you’ll pass by this location, so it’s kind of an introduction to the city and, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful spots. Here you will also find the Lover’s bridge that holds a legend that says if you kiss your lover here, your love will be eternal (sadly for all of us single people out there, the tale does not apply to us but don’t worry, we still can have the warmth of the Waffles). This is also the perfect place to decompress after a long day of sightseeing.
