Historic Centre of Brugge, Bruges

(4.9/5 based on 12,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Historic Centre of Brugge is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Bruges Edition.
