The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Take a break from the city and head to Bruges Art Route and Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen Nature Reserve. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Old Chocolate House and Rozenhoedkaai. Venture out of the city with trips to De Panne Beach (in De Panne), Patershol (in Ghent) and Spas (in Mouscron). There's still lots to do: make a trip to St Bonifacius Bridge, get a taste of the local shopping with Salvador Dali Exhibition, admire the landmark architecture of Brugge Sint Jacobskerk, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Anne's Church.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are Brussels Airport, Ostend-Bruges International Airport and Antwerp International Airport (Deurne). In December, daytime highs in Bruges are 9°C, while nighttime lows are 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
