  • Although there are two nice windmills at the end of city, few tourists visit it and it is a good chance to take nice photos as well. You may also enter one of the windmills by paying 3€.
  • One of our favorite things in Brugge was this walk by the windmills and the water. Very peaceful and relaxing
  • Most people coming to town never realise the treasure hidden here. First time close up to a wind mill.

  • An interesting relic of past industry- still working! Climb the steep stairs outside and inside for good views and a fascinating insight into milling. Catch the number 6 or 16 bus from the centre of town and then walk back via the other historic sites en route.
