Beautiful Bruges attractions is the quintessential fairy-tale city with its maze of cobbled streets, picturesque canals, elegant houses and historic churches; you can easily feel that you are stepping onto a movie set.
Our city’s mood changes with the seasons, from the lively, bustling crowds of the summer to the peaceful, icy winter streets.
There’s a wide array of things to see and do here in Bruges; the less active among you might choose to hire a horse and carriage or take a relaxing guided tour of the canal. If you prefer to walk, you can lose yourself in the winding streets or, for a little peace and quiet, visit Minnewater Lake, the so-called Lake of Love. We challenge you not to find this spot with its dazzling colours and graceful swans, truly romantic.
When you’re ready for something to eat and drink, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Bruges has a wide range of cafes and restaurants which can’t fail to tantalise your taste buds. From the 3 Michelin starred ‘De Karmeliet’ whose chef patron, Gert Van Heecke, is one of the godfathers of Belgian haute cuisine to simple ‘Frietkot’ or fries vans selling freshly made, piping hot chips with, of course, a good dollop of mayonnaise, you will find something to suit all tastes and budgets. Then there’s the chocolate…lots of it and it’s some of the best you’ll ever taste. Bypass the many chocolate shops around the Main Square or Markt and head for the cool and contemporary Bar Choc on Walstraat. There you can sample dishes such as rabbit in chocolate sauce, chocolate pancakes or gorge yourself on one of the 44 kinds of hot and cold chocolate drink; all made from real Belgian chocolate of course. Chocoholic heaven!
If you are a culture vulture, you’ll definitely want to make time to visit at least one of the galleries and museums. From contemporary Belgian plastic art to some of the finest works of the neoclassical period, via the whacky Frietmuseum (an attraction dedicated to the humble potato) we’ve got it all.
Film fans might like to follow in the footsteps of Coin Farrell in “In Bruges” and make the lung-busting 366 step climb to the top of the Belfort – not for the faint-hearted.When you’re done with your sightseeing, head to the Markt at the centre of the medieval city; grab a table at one of the cafes and enjoy watching the world go by with a glass of famous Belgian beer. The local drop; “Bruges Zot” or Bruges fool is definitely one to try. You’ll find bars selling as many as 100 different beers from light golden ales to dark, fruity sticky beers each served in its own specific glass. After a day of sampling all that Bruges has to offer, what could be better than making your way home to White Rooms? Our interior designer, Natalie Haegeman really has thought of everything to create a concept which is both contemporary, comfortable and completely in harmony with its central location.
You can unwind in the cosy living room, soak weary limbs in the antique bath tub and chill out in front of the flat screen TV before heading back into the city to enjoy more food, drinks and the vibrant nightlife. Or, if you prefer, it’s off to bed to catch up on your sleep ready to start your adventure again tomorrow.in bruges,
