Burg Square, Bruges
(4.8/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
It's hard to miss Burg Square, the site of the city hall and bustling cafes. The attraction has been an administration hub since its construction. The 1376 city hall building is known as one of the Bruges' most beautiful landmarks, but it has some competition in the square with Charlemagne's cathedral and the Renaissance civil registry. In fact, almost every era of European architecture is represented in the surrounding buildings. Sit down at one of the cafes to people-watch against the backdrop of grandiose buildings and monuments.

  • Lovely square with amazing buildings all around. Brilliant to wander round or to sit at one of the cafes for a beer or a snack. They'll be expensive given the locale but it's a thing you should do. 
  • Brugge (or bruges) can be defined as a small gem, a wedding favor. a small, romantic pleasant town. to explore on foot and required the Canal tour

  • Beautiful must square with the Flemish architecture buildings all around. To go absolutely in the bend of a walk!
