  • First we saw the square on the boat ride and then we were clearing the streets of Bruges until then. A lovely ride. The square is small, but from there you have a beautiful view of the canal. Time to sit back and enjoy. Peace and Tranquility beside the statue of Jan Van Eyck famous Flemish painter.

  • I happened to be walking there around sunset. The setting sun made all the building much more glorious!  more »

  • It's one of my favorite spot fir sun set in town. I took several fantastic photos here that i csne back the following evening trying to take in more facinating images.
  • A bigggg square with a statue in the middle. When the market isn't there, it's a bigggg empty square. The market is OK and there are some nice bars and interesting buildings.
  • A lovely more quiet square. Lovely restaurants too.
  • Beautiful and less touristic. The buildings around the statue are of historical importance. Do take a guided tour to know more of the minute things which leaves you with a gasp of awe.
  • one of the best place in Brugge. Mostly not crowded. Good place to sit by the canal in the evening
