Bruges is a kaleidoscopic city. Proud of its classification of World Heritage at the water by the Unesco. We are also called the Venice of the North. Eventually we also have both feet in the 21st century. Walk along the subtle mélange of shops to the Concert Hall. Admire our Flemish primitives or dip in our gastronomy with its impressive list of restaurants. Nowhere else in the world , the past and the future fuse as well as here in Bruges, the Beautiful ! Enjoy it.
Bruges is a city you have to experience. Walk throughout its authentic small streets from one rampart to the next. Sit on a bench at the canals and admire the authentic places that will surprise you by their originality. Bruges is history. Watch the houses along the canals, they reflect the rich past of the city. Pure atmosphere! And for the romantic souls: take a night walk, Bruges by night is irresistible.
Enjoy with all your senses
Bruges is not only that beautiful lady to glance at. It is also a Mekka for foodies : this is the place where the Burgundian way of life started. The paradise of beer and chocolate lovers. Between our city walls you’ll find an impressive list of restaurants. Not less than 36 ‘chefs’ are recommended by Le Guide Michelin, Gault & Millau or Bib Gourmand. Fascinating, not?
For the culture-loving amongst you, Bruges has it all. The Flemish primitives at the Groeninge museum, the Gruuthuusemuseum, the many churches with their treasures, the numerous historical buildings… Bruges is Cultural World Heritage with its long history but she also turns to the future. Expositions such as the Triënnale, or the jazz festival in de Werf, music and dance and theatre performances at the Concert Hall or the City theatre. She offers it all.
