The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Venture out of the city with trips to Menin Gate Memorial (in Ieper (Ypres)) and Ghent (Saint Bavo's Cathedral, Gravensteen Castle, & more). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to The Markt, get to know the fascinating history of Beguinage (Begijnhof), explore the activities along Minnewater Lake, and steep yourself in history at Historic Centre of Brugge.

To find traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Bruges day trip planning site .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Brussels Airport, Ostend-Bruges International Airport and Antwerp International Airport (Deurne). Expect a daytime high around 19°C in May, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
