Trip Report Don't slight Bruges

Jump to last reply

When I was planning my trip to Bruges, I got advice on a Fodor forum that I could see everything in a day or two. Having spent five glorious days here, I find that advice hilarious. I guess it depends on how you travel. When I'm in Europe, I enjoy the different pace, the cafe life, being what the French call a flaneur. I have no interest in feeling or being rushed. I also know my first day there is often a time of being tired, so I take it extra easy. But honestly, I have not remotely exhausted what there is to do here. I've been to the museum with the Memlings, the Basilica and half a dozen other gorgeous churches. I've wandered along various canals, savoring the architecture. I've seen major and minor squares, tried various restaurants and gone back to the ones I loved for languorous meals. I followed some of the wise advice in the brand new Bruges City official guide available on amazon which has several different walking tours through very different parts of the city. Anyone who tells you that you can see Bruges in a day or two hasn't really seen the city, please give it time if you really want to experience being here. I also recommend coming for Ascension Day. They've been parading since 1303 and the current version is full of history, dance, juggling, flag waving, faith, and more. Also not to miss: Vissinghe Pub which has
been open for 500 years.
