What to expect

Discover the city of Bruges, often described as the "Venice of the North" with its canals and considered as one of Europe's most beautiful cities!

At 8.30am we pick you up in the center of Brussels to head to the charming town of Bruges, located 100 kilometers northwest of the Belgian capital and only 15 km from the North Sea.

Your itinerary will begin at the Lake of Love or Minnewater, one of the most beautiful postcards of Bruges and that hides a little-known legend. Then, you will continue your visit to the historic center of Bruges, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. See the Walplein, a small and relatively quiet little square in the Historic Centre of Bruges where you will find some of the oldest houses in the city, which preserve the medieval structure that characterizes Bruges.

During your visit to this medieval city full of history, discover the Hospital of San Jhon, one of Europe's oldest surviving hospital buildings. The hospital grew during the Middle Ages and was a place where sick pilgrims and travelers were cared for. Next to it, you will find the Church of Our Lady of Bruges, which houses the Madonna of Michelangelo.

On the tour you will pass by the Palace of the Lords Gruut, we will cross the San Bonifacio bridge and we will end at the harbor del Rosario, which offers us another typical picture of the place. The route ends in two of the busiest and most central squares in Bruges: The Town Hall Square and the Grote Markt or Market Square, chaired by the Bell Tower or, as it is known in flamenco, Belfort Tower.

During your day trip enjoy the best recommendations from your guide to enjoying the typical dishes such as the chocolate and the beer.

At the end of the visit, you will have 4 hours of free time to eat and explore the city at your leisure!
