Food/Sights/Accommodations Recommendations for Bruges

Jump to last reply

I'm heading off to Bruges for four days over at the end of December (most likely the week between Christmas and New Years. Planning on flying into Brussels (from Madrid), spending the day (and possibly one night) and taking the train from there. Would love some suggestions on where to eat, stay and sightsee in both Brussels and Bruges.

The specifics: Traveling with one friend. We are both pretty easy going and love exploring cities and museums. We don't need fancy accommodations, just looking for a moderately priced place to stay. As long as it's clean and within walking distance from major attractions or the city center, we'll be happy.

Dining: We LOVE trying new foods and local cuisine, and meeting the locals who run/own the restaurants. We are both somewhat "foodies" but definitely not food snobs. Looking forward to trying a variety of places—high end and low. We'll probably treat ourselves to one or two nice meals, and otherwise look for some moderately priced (but tasty) options. I don't eat meat (though I love fish)...so ideally looking for places that aren't so "meat centric".

The sights: We want to make the most of our time in Bruges (and Brussels) so we'd greatly appreciate any suggestions and recommendations! Thanks so much in advance for all the planning help!
