  • Old gate of the eve city. It is very well restored and maintained. Away from the tourist circuits and the crowd. Looks like the Donkey's gate.

  • I stayed on the city edge, and this was my walking entrance to head into Market Square. Pedestrian walkway alongside, but vehicles had to alternate between coming & going access.  more »
  • Recently renovated (couple of years), one of the many ports that gives access to Bruges! You drive through this port city outside, you go in the direction of St. Andrew, where among other things the Jan Breydel football stadium is located and also the former Olympia swimming pool (now S&R pool).
