The best way to see Bruges, in Belgium, is to take a boat trip or carriage ride
Are you traveling to Bruges in Belgium? The first place I take a visitor from out of town is to Bruges city center. The historic centre of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
At the end of a busy day, I go to the city parks to relax and watch people.
Hoping to escape the crowds and tourists? The wind mills of Bruges and the Beguinage are great places for peace and quiet.
When you visit Bruges, get your picture taken at Rozenhoedkaai.
Bruges and food
Everyone knows that Bruges is famous for its waffles, but when I am hungry for Bruges cuisine, I head to Cafedraal.
One of my favorite places to dine in Bruges is Restaurant Den Dyver, order anything paired with beer menu.
When visiting Bruges , this is the place for Belgium chocolates, fine lace and tapestries.
If you are traveling without a lot of money, go to the French fries stalls in front of the Belfry; the waffles are cheap, too.
For a huge splurge, I go to De Karmeliet or Patrick Devos. While the Market Square is the spot for late night dining.
The entire town of Bruges is a photo opportunity. Here is Nancy D. Brown with the Belfry in the background.
Photo opportunities in Bruges are as easy as standing by the canals with swans swimming in the background, but they also include Rozenhoedkaai or on top of the Belfry.
The best vantage points are taken by walking to the top of the Belfry or Concertgebouw.
The most random thing about Bruges is the Holy Blood Procession. While the name of the annual event is not catchy, the procession, held in May is amazing to watch. Check out my YouTube video of the Holy Blood Procession for parade highlights.
