Bruges alone? Bruges + Ghent? +Antwerp?

Jump to last reply

I've wanted to see Bruges for a long time and will finally get my chance but I can't tell even from guide books how much time is enough. I'll be training from Schiphol, so I could spend six nights there, or five and stay at Schiphol the night before I fly home. Or divide my time between Bruges and Ghent, or Bruges and Antwerp.

I prefer staying in one place and doing day trips rather than switching hotels/cities. I love churches, museums, cafe lolling. Should I base myself in Bruges and see if I get bored there, and if so, take short jaunts to either Ghent or Antwerp? Or is a few days in Bruges enough to have one's fill?
