The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Change things up with these side-trips from Bruges: Menin Gate Memorial (in Ieper (Ypres)) and Ghent (Saint Bavo's Cathedral, Gravensteen, & more). There's much more to do: make a trip to The Markt, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Princely Beguinage Ten Wijngaarde, see the interesting displays at Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum, and explore the activities along Minnewater Lake.

To find traveler tips, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Bruges planning website .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Brussels Airport, Ostend-Bruges International Airport and Antwerp International Airport (Deurne).
