Damme is a picturesque little medieval town in the Belgian polders, at only 5 milometers from the historical Brugge (Bruges).
Apparently, this town, not larger than one street long, is a place where time stopped.
Don't believe it. It's a tourist town "pure sang"!!!
Almost all lovely, charming old houses are restaurants. Except for a few historical spots, there are just nothing else than restaurants...beautiful, old charming expensive restaurants.
Still, this town exerts an enormus attraction on everyone. The scenery is magnificent and the location of Damme is marvellous. Let me show you some pictures and a few "must sees" as appetizer...
The signboard of Restaurant "Pallieter", a very inviting place, just next to the City Hall in the Kerkstraat.
The visit of the ruin of the old "Onze Lieve Vrouwe" church is free.
Some of the pictures in my tips are taken during winter, and some in Spring. As we liked our first visit, we decided to come back in spring and to take our bike with us. Brugge is only 5 kilometers from Damme, a perfect combination.
- Pros:A warm, welcoming town
- Cons:No "cons" at all
- In a nutshell:Make sure you call Damme "a city". The inhabitants are proud of their origins!

There are very few shops in Damme. I saw some libraries, a pharmacy, a butcher's and a hairdresser, a drinkmarket... and... more travel advice
