"Why, you MUST join a day..." Excursions Tip by Krystynn

Excursions, Brussels: 22 reviews and 26 photos


<i>Why</i>, you MUST join a day excursion to the quaint and beautiful town of <b><u>Brugge</b></u>. Better still if you can spend an idyllic weekend here (read: at least 2 or 3 days). In which case, you must travel to Brugge on your own.

This quaint little town seems to be the most widely-visited place here in Belgium. It would not be too far-fetched to even say that Brugge is probably also the most perfectly preserved medieval town in the whole western Europe world.

<i>What can a tourist/ traveler do in Brugge?</i>

<i>Oh</i>, plenty! Let's begin with the many museums found here. In quite a few of these museums, you'll even get a chance to glimpse at some of the most superb Flemish masterpieces. <i>Not kidding</i>. Don't forget to check out the Town Square too.... best seen on foot. Then, there is the Helig Bloed Basiliek or the neighboring Stadhuis to keep you occupied for a short while. Some really picturesque houses and buildings lining the banks of the waterways are also worth capturing on camera/ film.

If you happen to crave for a drink or a bite to eat, Brugge has many good bars and lovely restaurants. So, no worries about going hungry here. :-)

And finally, because the surrounding countryside is so beautiful and PEFECT for cycling, it would be a real waste if you don't rent a bike and go for a well-deserved cycling tour of the countryside (<i>albeit a short one if you don't have much time to spare</i>)!
<i>Ah</i>, so many things to see and do... but so little time! ;-(
