Minnewater Lake, Bruges

4.5
#1 of 54 in Nature in Belgium
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. Put Minnewater Lake into our Bruges route website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
