Enjoy a break soaking up the famous sights of Bruges. Step back in time, travel to Bruges and discover the most delightful little city of canals and bridges, medieval Flemish architecture, cobbled streets and gabled guild houses. Bruges, the most perfectly preserved medieval town in Europe has a unique atmosphere. Stroll by one of the canals, you could almost be in Venice, in fact Bruges is also known as ‘Venice of the North’, sip a coffee in the Old Market or take a gentle trip around the town by horse and carriage. For art lovers there are three excellent museums housing many fine works by Dutch and Flemish artists including Van Eyck, Rembrandt, and many more.
