Dreaming of a nice weekend away to take a break from your busy and tiring week, but don’t have the time nor the money to go to tropical places? Why not try spending the weekend in “The Venice of the North”? Bruges is a wonderful place, for a romantic getaway, a backpacking trip or a family day; everyone will enjoy this beautiful city!

What to do?

Try the touristic attractions. Yes, there might be a lot of people in the historic open square called Markt, but it is a must-see in Bruges. Climb the 366 stairs of the 83 metre high Belfort and be rewarded with a breath-taking and unforgettable panoramic view of Bruges and its surroundings.

After that, the visit of the city isn’t complete without a boat trip on the canal. Discover the city in 30 minutes under a completely different angle. If you’d rather have your feet on the ground, climb in a horse-drawn carriage and visit the city with an expert commentary given by the coachman. The tour includes a stopover at the Beguinage, the semi-monastic community of women called “Beguines”.

Last but not least, Bruges is know as the chocolate city. With more than 50 chocolatiers, Bruges is the place to get your fill of cacao. Chocolate lovers will love the smell of fabulous chocolate that fills the streets of the medieval city.
