Full description
Discover the “Venice of the North” on a full-day guided tour of Bruges from Brussels. Depart the Belgian capital and transfer to the charming town of Bruges, located 100 kilometers northwest (and just 15 kilometers from the North Sea).

Upon arrival, see why the entire historic center of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Go to the Lake of Love (Minnewaterpark) to see a tranquil oasis in the heart of the city. Marvel at the 13th-century Begijnhof, which is covered in a carpet of daffodils in the spring. Continue to the quiet, paved square of Walplein, and stroll down the narrow Stoofstraat.

See sights such as the 800-year-old St. John’s Hospital, and the imposing façade of the Church of Our Lady (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk). Learn the history of the opulent palace of Gruuthuse, and walk alongside the banks of the Dijver Canal.

Other highlights include the charming canal-side houses of the Rozenhoedkaai, the tiny square of the Huidenvettersplein (Tanners Square), and the site of the 1st count’s castle on Castle Square. Striking buildings on the square and nearby include the Basilica of the Holy Blood, City Hall, the Oude Griffie, the neighboring Market Square (Grote Markt), a handsome Belfry (Belfort) and the impressive tower of St. Salvator’s Cathedral.

Then, enjoy free time for lunch and to explore the city as you please. Taste some of the exclusive chocolates of Bruges and pop into some of the legendary lace shops. Transfer back to Brussels, with an approximate 18:00 arrival time.

  • Since January 1, 2018, Bruges has a new regulation for the management of tourist visits. On certain occasions, the company must perform the service using radios with headphones. Due to the contamination that implies using disposable helmets, we ask our clients to contribute their own to avoid the problem and collaborate with the environment. For those customers who do not have their own, the company will make available disposable for only € 1.
