Trip Report Just back from 4 nights in Bruges

Jump to last reply

Three couples traveling together and we are just back from a lovely 4 days and nights in Bruges, a nice ending to a 2 week trip in the Benelux, Amsterdam and Germany.

We stayed at the NH Bruge which was a great choice for us, with easy access to the center and to the train station.

Other than one awful meal at Cafe Marco, we had very good food experiences. Miss Ellie was our regular spot for breakfast and we enjoyed our lunch and dinner at Marieke van Brugghe and two dinners at De Vlaamsche Pot. Their steak tartare and rabbit stew were both wonderful!

We made two day trips, one to Oostende which was mostly closed and with lots of construction, and one to Ghent which made for a nice afternoon.

This was our first trip to Belgium and while we are not planning a return trip anytime soon, we did enjoy our visit and especially our time in Bruges.
