The Flanders Tourism Office has asked us to send out this communiqué:

“Following the attacks in Paris and subsequent police investigations in Belgium, a number of countries ask their citizens to be extra vigilant when travelling to Europe and Belgium.

Apart from extra police presence in Brussels, all tourist events and activities in Belgium take place as normal: attractions and museums are open and all transportation services, both national and international, are running as normal. The airports and public buildings are open and all tourist events will go ahead as planned.

Wallonie-Bruxelles Tourisme, Visit Brussels and VISITFLANDERS monitor the situation closely. We have complete confidence in Belgian security services and are convinced that the authorities will do everything in their power to safeguard the security of all visitors.

Contact your local authorities for the latest updates on travel advice."

29.07.15 - Coach restrictions entering Brugge;

Police are tightening up on the coach restrictions in Brugge now. A voucher is required (issued by the hotel in advance) for entrance in to/out of Brugge only on the arrival / departure dates shown on the voucher, to allow for coaches to drop off and pick up passengers on arrival / departure with luggage only. If the driver doesn't have the voucher they will be fined if they are pulled up by the police.

If the driver is picking up/dropping off passengers and doesn't have any luggage they will also be fined.

The coach park in Brugge is on Bargeplein (Kanaaleiland) which is 10 mins walk from the Academie and 20 mins walk from the Portinari and Park Brugge.  If there are passengers that are unable to walk to/from the coach park they will need to arrange a taxi.
