The renowned City of Romance, an ideal location for a cultural city break.
Suspended in time centuries ago, Bruges is now one of Western Europe’s most-visited medieval cities. Picturesque market squares, dreamy canals and whitewashed almshouses all evoke a world long since past.
The heart of Bruges
Surrounded by an almost continuous ring of canals, is the best preserved example of medieval Flanders. The city centre is picture perfect and is often referred to as “the Venice of the North” where it is virtually impossible to take a bad photograph. Jules Destrooper, the Belgian biscuit maker, has paid the city the ultimate compliment and placed the city’s Beguinage on one of his delightful biscuit tins. Not surprisingly, Bruges is the most popular tourist destination in Flanders. It is fair to say that the theme of chocolate and Bruges go hand in hand, and there are numerous traditional chocolate shops dotted all over the city. In many parts of Bruges, and as a speciality of the city, you can dine at restaurants where entire menus are focused on dishes made exclusively from chocolate.
Because of the nature of the city, hotels in Bruges tend to be small, charming and family-run. One family making a name for itself in Bruges is the Vanhaeckes, who not only own Bonifacius, but also The Pand Hotel (Pandreitje 16) and Maison le Dragon (Eekhoutstraat 5); all are stunning individual properties, which manage to successfully combine stylish interiors with a warm welcome. For more stylish hotels, visit our website www.visitflanders.co.uk.
There are also larger boutique hotels as well as international properties such as the majestic five-star Kempinski Dukes’ Palace. The range of activities on offer in Bruges is endless; from guided city walks to boat trips along the canals, to a tour of the city by horse and carriage, there are everlasting ways to discover Bruges’ enchanting city centre.
Bruges is so pristine, it's akin to a film set, which seems appropriate given that 2008 marked the premiere of In Bruges, a film starring Ralph Fiennes and Colin Farrell, which features two hit men holed up in the city after a difficult job.
'Crisscrossed by canals, Bruges is one of Europe's most beautiful medieval cities, but with its lively bars and lovely galleries, there's a lot more to it than sightseeing. Go in January or February to escape tourists and see the place at your own pace.' William Jacob Cook, Condé Nast Traveller
