Beautiful Bruges 2019

The historic city centre of Bruges is famous for its remarkable medieval architecture, beautiful 13th century Belfry, picturesque canals and lacemaking. Our two fantastic hotels are based in the centre of Bruges, perfect for exploring all the city has to offer.
Horse-drawn Carriage & Canal Boat Tours
Why not enjoy a 30 minute carriage ride along Bruges’ historic winding streets with expert commentary from your coachman? Alternatively, see the beauty of Bruges from the water with a 30 minute boat trip on the canals around the city.

Market Square & Belfry
Life in Bruges centres on the market square which is overlooked by the Belfry Tower, the most imposing in Belgium. The massive tower dates back to the 13th century and the view from the top looks out over all of Bruges and its surroundings.

Brewery Bourgogne des Flandres
After nearly 60 years, Brasserie Bourgogne des Flandres has returned to the inner city of Bruges with its own brewery. Explore the brewery and breathe in the smell of malt and fresh hops in the loft. See how the beer is brewed with your own eyes - and maybe have a taste?

Groeningemuseum
This small museum houses an outstanding collection of 15th century Flemish art.

Kantcentrum (Lace Centre)
Opened in 2014, the Lace Centre is housed in the renovated old lace school of the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception. The story of Bruges’ lace is told in the lace museum on the ground floor and demonstrations are also held in the workshop.

Beguinage
The Beguinage of Bruges was founded in 1245 and is now inhabited by nuns. Its whitecoloured house fronts, tranquil garden and Beguinage Museum offer a glimpse into what life was like in the 17th century. Enjoy the tranquillity of this little piece of world heritage.
