"Venice of the North" Brugge Things to Do Tip by clareabee

Brugge Things to Do: 1,275 reviews and 2,229 photos

Brugges is often referred to as the Venice of the North - I have never been to Venice but I am sure it alludes to the number of canals in the city - there are a fair few of them - infact wherever you are in the city the canal is never far away.

Some of the bridges are lovely and there are boat trips along the canal which would be worth a trip - although when we visited it was a little cold to do this!

The canals certainly are a focal point of the city.
