  The windmill at Damme
by datapanik

It's not completely off the beaten path but if the tourist hordes in the centre of Bruges get too much then just step sideways and head off for the picturesque village of Damme, 7km away.

There are several transport options; by bus, though the service is infrequent, by boat along the Damse Vaart canal or by cycle, following the canal side cycle track, which is my preference.

Once in Damme, you will find several restaurants and cafes along the main street, Kerkstraat, where you can re-fuel. The windmill by the canal bank is open for visits at weekends.
