Are you a history-loving, beer-supping chocoholic seeking the perfect place to go on holiday? Bruges hits the spot every time. UNESCO was right on the mark when they popped the historical city centre on the World Heritage list back in 2000. And after your city break in Bruges, this Flemish fancy will be top of your list too.
Whether you’re dreaming of a cosy getaway for two or a fun-filled weekender with friends, a holiday in Bruges will refresh parts other cities just don’t reach. You can’t go wrong with this compact, refined and wonderfully preserved medieval city. Get your bearings with a jaunt to the top of the impressive belfry which towers over bustling Market Square. Back on ground level; wander the winding cobbled lanes past tall, narrow buildings with their charming crow-stepped gables.
There are countless museums showing everything from archaeological excavations to fine silverware and galleries exhibiting the Flemish masters to modern artists. Ruminate over a steaming pot of fresh mussels washed down with a glass of sweet cherry beer. Then top it off with a mound of waffles.
Holidays to Bruges are the cherry on top.
