Get to know Bruges with Viator
Bruges—the capital of West Flanders—is Belgium at its chocolate-box best. The UNESCO-listed Old Town is all step-gabled buildings, cobblestones, and canals. The Markt (Market Square), crowned by the towering 13th-century Belfry, offers reminders of the city''s days as a medieval textile-industry hub. Today, however, Bruges is relatively tranquil compared to bustling Brussels, and its old-fashioned chocolate shops, lively beer bars, and cozy restaurants offer delightful ways to while away the hours.
