Bruges

4.2
Venice of the North
The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site. Long before the film "In Bruges" came out, this town was a hopping tourist destination. Bruges bustles with visitors, many of whom arrive for day trips to see the cobbled lanes and historical buildings, such as the famed 13th-century belfry. Though there are crowds here year-round; on weekdays and evenings you'll get a quieter glimpse of this famously romantic town. Use our online itinerary creator: Bruges and all its delights await.
