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.

  • A park in the South of the city near the train station but where calm is present. It is a good starting point for a visit. You can sit on a bench and watch the place.
