"Coupure" Quiet Streets and Areas. Tip by ATLC

Quiet Streets and Areas., Brugge: 36 reviews and 41 photos


Coupure is along the canal that turns off from Groene Rei. The area between Coupure and Queen Astrid park is not touristic, very quiet and you see little treasures there.
I think this is of old the quarter of leather and clothemaking craftspeople.
Coupure means the coupon of cloth or the cut itself (couper is French for cutting).

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
