Antwerp or Bruges . . . Which should we visit on the Weekend?

Jump to last reply

Hello, For those familiar with Belgium, we are looking for some advice on arranging our vacation. We are traveling to Amsterdam first and then Antwerp and Bruges. Do you think we should arrange our travel so that we are in Antwerp on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or in Bruges for those days? We're so excited to see both cities! Just don't know which order makes more sense .... i.e. Does one of those cities have a great market that is only opened on Saturdays, that you recommend we do not miss?

Also, do you think we should stay in Antwerp 3 nights and Bruges 1 night, or 2 nights in each city?? We were planning on only one night in Bruges but all the hotels we've looked into have 2 night minimums. Are they just trying to get us to stay longer because everyone always stays for just one night in their small city? The hotels do look very beautiful though, so maybe it's worth staying longer . . .

Thank you for any advice!
