The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Groeningemuseum and Friet Museum. Visiting Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen Nature Reserve and De Fonteintjes will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bruges: Ghent (Gravensteen, De Assels, &more). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Historic Centre of Brugge, take in panoramic vistas at Belfry of Bruges, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedrale Saint Sauveur de Bruges, and see the interesting displays at Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum.

To find traveler tips, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Bruges online trip itinerary builder.
