The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes The Old Chocolate House. Change things up with these side-trips from Bruges: Ghent (Gravensteen, Ghent City Center, & more) and Menin Gate Memorial (in Ieper (Ypres)). The adventure continues: make a trip to The Markt, contemplate the waterfront views at Minnewater Lake, take an in-depth tour of Groeningemuseum, and get to know the fascinating history of The Princely Beguinage Ten Wijngaarde.
