Whit Monday in Brugge

Jump to last reply

My friends and I are planning a trip to Paris, Normandy, and Amsterdam in May of 2016, and are considering spending 2 nights in Brugge (traveling by train) in between Paris and Amsterdam. The 2 nights we have available happen to land on Pentacost Sunday and Whit Monday (May 15th and 16th). I am told that this a bank holiday and that some shops/sites will be closed. I was in Brugge during the mid week this September and it was very pleasant, especially in the evenings, with no excessive crowds except on the main market square. Has anyone had any experience being in Brugge during this holiday? We are ok with some of the sites being closed and know it's a tourist destination with lots of people visiting, but might skip it if there will be huge crowds given the holiday. If we don't go, we would probably extend our time in Normandy, but I think they also celebrate this holiday. Any thoughts?
