Bruges: 10 things to do in 1 day!

Brugge: 10 things to do in 1 day!

Bruges is a very beautiful city, with a very romantic and medieval look. It is considered World Heritage Site since 2000 because its historic center is a very well-preserved example of medieval times. Historically, Bruges became a big city, even bigger than London. Its focus was textile production. At that time, the city had a canal that connected to the sea. When the canal dried up and the city lost access to the sea, Bruges became isolated. At that time Antwerp (today the second-largest city in Belgium) and its port grew, leaving Bruges behind.

You can visit its main attractions in just one day!

Here are the 10 most important things to visit in Bruges

 De Halve Maan

Beer lovers should take a guided tour of the De Halve Maan brewery. On this tour, you get to know the history of the place. In the end, you can taste some beers, as well as try the snacks and dishes prepared for visitors at the Brugse Zot Blonde. In the most complete tour, you are accompanied by a beer expert and the tasting is in the cellars of the brewery.

 St Boniface Bridge

This bridge offers one of the most romantic views of the city. St Boniface Bridge is a small bridge built in 1910, which gives a beautiful view of the oldest part of Bruges and is worth a photo.

Grote Markt

This is the most famous tourist spot in the city, with a wide square full of beautiful buildings where you will also find the Bruges Historium. Another building you will find in the square is the Provinciaal Hof, a beautiful neo-Gothic building that is the seat of the provincial government of West-Vlaanderen.

A super quiet village, full of greenery, where nuns of the order of St. Benedict currently reside. Beginjnhof is already a Unesco heritage site, built in 1245 by the Beguine order. Enjoy the silence!
