Create an itinerary including Historic Centre of Brugge
Step into Old World charm in Historic Centre of Brugge. Once a medieval settlement, this quiet city center still features preserved Gothic buildings and was at one time considered to be a major commercial city, due mainly to its port. Walk the cobbled streets to find endless chocolate shops, pubs featuring doubles and triples, and a mix of architectural styles. View the historic city on a boat tour through the canals, or sit back during a carriage ride through the canal-lined streets. If you've seen the film "In Bruges," you may want to take a guided tour, which can pinpoint major locations from the film.

  • Bruges - wow! Every street and square is just beautiful. The roads and pavements in the historic centre are cobbled so flat shoes are an absolute must. We feared for the wheels on our suitcases...

  • An interesting square. It is tighter than the one with the belfry, but still beautiful nonetheless. I was surprised it was even there. It didn’t seem like there would be an opening to a square and then, BAM. Neat history and beautifully well maintained buildings. This is worth a stop when you are exploring town.
