  Village of Damme from canal
by mtncorg

Damme became the seaport for Brugge when the river Zwin silted in the port of Brugge. A beautiful town hall and old church demonstrates Damme's brief moment in history - before the port here silted in, as well. Damme is a short, flat bike ride northeast from Brugge.
