Step into Old World charm in Historic Centre of Brugge. Once a medieval settlement, this quiet city center still features preserved Gothic buildings and was at one time considered to be a major commercial city, due mainly to its port. Walk the cobbled streets to find endless chocolate shops, pubs featuring doubles and triples, and a mix of architectural styles. View the historic city on a boat tour through the canals, or sit back during a carriage ride through the canal-lined streets. If you've seen the film "In Bruges," you may want to take a guided tour, which can pinpoint major locations from the film.

  • Parking at T Zand is easy and fast in the city. Tip : parking at station : with your parking ticket you can take free by bus to the city centre. Take more than 1 day out, because there is a lot to do, see and taste. The city of Belgium in my view.

We also visited the medieval building of St. John's Hospital, picturesque Dyver Canal, there are restrictions for all tastes
