Bruges – The Northern Venice

After visiting Antwerp, I took the train to Bruges. I have only one word for you: wow! As soon as I started approaching the medieval city centre I was completely sold. It was like stepping out of the train directly to the 16th century!


Again I was exploring the city by foot but that’s the perfect option in Bruges as the city centre is basically like a free of charge outdoor museum. The streets and restaurants are full of tourists but to be fair – the tourists are there for a good reason. And thanks to the tourism you can get service in English everywhere.

In case you don’t feel like walking, you can do your sightseeing tour also with a horse ride or by boat. The canals along the city centre are the reason why Bruges is called as the “Venice of the North”. A 35 minute boat tour is available around every corner and costs 7,60 €.


I don’t think there’s a reason for me to keep on blabbering about Bruges being amazing. Instead, have a look at the pictures and decide yourself if you should visit the city or not. I think you should! 🙂
