Create an itinerary including Historic Centre of Brugge
Step into Old World charm in Historic Centre of Brugge. Once a medieval settlement, this quiet city center still features preserved Gothic buildings and was at one time considered to be a major commercial city, due mainly to its port. Walk the cobbled streets to find endless chocolate shops, pubs featuring doubles and triples, and a mix of architectural styles. View the historic city on a boat tour through the canals, or sit back during a carriage ride through the canal-lined streets. If you've seen the film "In Bruges," you may want to take a guided tour, which can pinpoint major locations from the film.

  • This place is a must see! Make some time to come here and just relax, take a boat trip, and stop for a meal or drink. It is really worth it.

  • An interesting square. It is tighter than the one with the belfry, but still beautiful nonetheless. I was surprised it was even there. It didn’t seem like there would be an opening to a square and then, BAM. Neat history and beautifully well maintained buildings. This is worth a stop when you are exploring town.
