Trip Report Trip Report: Overnight in Bruges

Jump to last reply

Greetings Fodorites!

I recently posted a Bruges trip report on my blog and thought I would share it with the Forum.
https://juliesparis.wordpress.com/2011/05/22/paris-sidetrips-the-best-of-bruges/

We did an easy overnight from Paris via train. The canals, history, shopping and beer make Bruges a wonderful destination that we heartily recommend. We stayed near Markt Square which made everything walkable. Unfortunately I can't recommend our hotel. It was a bit too basic for us (and we're not high-end travelers!) but at least the location was good.

The boat ride on the canal was well worth the time and a wonderful way to get a sense of the city. It will work up a healthy appetite for a beer - and I can recommend a stop at Bierbrasserie Cambrinus where the house beer is the best on earth! To my great surprise, every meal was excellent and affordable.

There is more detail in the two blog posts - the upshot: I loved Bruges and it was well worth the time and effort to stop there!

Regards--
Julie
