  1. What a fabulous exploration of Brugges! I so enjoyed your beautiful photographs. I had the misfortune to visit one day, long ago, and in freezing fog, so my impressions were very different. 🙂 🙂

  2. I LOVE to read posts like this about my hometown! You’re so right, spending only 1 day in Bruges is NOT enough. It’s great you spent 3 nights there, good decision!
    Just one thing though, it’s very easy to get to Bruges, you can catch a train in Brussels airport that goes directly to Bruges, it takes about 1,5hrs. 🙂

    1. Thanks for your comment, we loved the three days we spent there. You are so blessed to live in such a beautiful place. I don’t mean it’s impossible to get to Bruges, but when you consider that most European cities have their own airport, it just makes Bruges a little harder to get to. I know it put us off in the past as the train journey or drive from the airport is just something extra to arrange. We decided to hire a car in the end and drive from Brussels to Bruges just because it worked out a lot cheaper but the train would’ve been good too. 🙂

  3. Bruges has been on my travel hit list for some time. The only factor that’s really deterred me is, like you say, Bruges doesn’t have its own airport so it’s a little tricky to get to for a long weekend away. It looks like exactly the kind of place I’d love though – one of those city’s you can just wander aimlessly, taking a ridiculous amount of photos! Yours are beautiful by the way 🙂

    1. Yes, the lack of an airport deterred us for a while to but it was worth the extra little jaunt (only an hour from Brussels airport). As I live in the UK, the flight was only 45 minutes from London so it was easier to get to than I expected!

  4. Loved all of your photos! Looks like you had a great visit in Brugges, would love to make it there once I’m back living in France and can coordinate a longer euro trip

  5. I spent a summer in Brugge for study abroad, and ever since then Brugge has had a special place in y heart. Thank you for bringing back some good ole memories, your pictures are great!

  6. Although I much preferred the city of Ghent, I do wish I had more time to explore Bruges when I was there. I am a guilty one-dayer. I found it very easy to take a train from Brussels to get there, but I’m interested in the idea of renting a car too. Was it difficult to find parking in Bruges?

    1. I heard that Ghent is even more beautiful but we didn’t want to rush around to see both cities in three days, so thought another trip to Ghent itself would be better. We booked a hire car because the train worked out almost double in price for our dates and I knew that our hotel had a car park right next door, so it just seemed a more logical option for us. Although I have heard the train from Brussels to Bruges is easy too.

  7. Beautiful pictures of a great place. I love Bruges, it really takes you back in time. Did you also visit the monastary? Its very peaceful to wander the grounds. Thank you for a nice read on your post 🙂

  8. Very nice post. You should be working for the Bruges Chamber of Commerce. We will be there later this year for four nights and your post provided inspiration. Thanks!
