One of the best things about Europe is the gorgeous little cities that you can wander around in even for just a day. Brugge is definitely one of those cities.
My ultimate top tip about Brugge is: Do not go on a Sunday.
If you’re just looking at exploring for a day, a lot of things are closed on a Sunday so you may end up sad, like me. Ha ha.
But nah, there’s still a lot of shops open. Not to mention the chocolatiers! Along the tiny streets of this beautiful medieval town are cute little chocolate shops bursting for tourists to come in.
So I went in.
To probably 4 or 5.
And bought all the pralines I could get my greedy little hands on.
Catching a break from eating, it was time to explore the city centre.
Fun fact: It’s only a hectare so it’s pretty small.
You’ll see the belfry which is probably the tallest building in all of Brugge so it’s a great meeting point if you break up in groups or anything. Just across the Belfry is the town hall and lined up restaurants that are an array of different delicacies.
Similar to Amsterdam, Brugge also has pretty canals.
And some museums worth going to like the Frittes Museum, Gruuthuse Museum and this one I thought you’d like-
The Beer Museum.
I did a bit more walking before a bit more eating.
This here is the Lover’s Lake, which is meant to bring good luck to lovers who visit it. But my lover was nowhere to be found.. again. Lol
Okay, top two things that you have to eat in Brugge:
Hands down, best waffle I’ve ever had in my life.
Hands down, best fries I’ve ever had in my life.
I don’t know? There is something about their fries and their mayonnaise that tastes different!
I probably gained three kilos in one day with the amount of food I ate. But all worth it.
Still hoping you’d come exploring with me,
