""VENICE OF THE NORTH"" Brugge by balhannah

Brugge Travel Guide: 2,827 reviews and 7,594 photos


Another beautiful medieval city in Belgium.
Brugge is the capital of the province of West Flanders and has a population of approx 120,000 people.
Brugge is old, being settled in the 9th century by the Vikings.

Another city where it is great to walk around and to do a Canal tour, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the city from the boat.
The City centre is closed off to cars so Horse drawn carriages are available for tours.

There are streets of Historic Houses centuries old to see.
You will also find plenty of Chocolate and Lace shops in Brugge.

Brugges is a City that I would love to come back to and see more, I thoroughly enjoyed my short time here.

    As a matter of fact, we were in Brugge yesterday. We saw the organ ginder at work at the "Grand Place". He was part of the show again :-)
