Minnewater Lake, Bruges

(4.5/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Take in a view of the city from the bridge in Minnewater Lake. The lake and its park act as an entrance to the city and are home to many swans, a symbol of Bruges. The lake's name translates roughly to "lake of love," and its canals are cozy and romantic. The calm waters contain near-perfect reflections of the trees and buildings that surround the lake. Spend some quiet time in this picturesque park enjoying the beautiful scenery and the wild swans and other birds. To visit Minnewater Lake on your trip to Bruges, use our Bruges trip builder.

  • Romantic mood and this Lake and its Park, just opposite the train station. Beautiful walks

  • I personally feel the more not very many proposals. Perhaps it's there in the spring/summer looks nicer than in March. It was fairly empty on the banks and by the rain was less fun (video, what's kind of fun with rain ...). It is nice to get a breath of fresh air and to walk quietly along. I wouldn't say it's a must-see, but if you're there, why not!
