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.

  • The views are beautiful, and there is a path where you can walk and walk to relax and sit and look at one of their seats or on the lawn with a coffee or a wine

  • My favourite place in Bruges. In the middle of the busy city you can perfectly relax and unwind. An ideal place to have a picnic! Highly recommended if you wish to avoid the shopping streets here.
