Bruges Travel Guide

by our Belgium expert Conrad Freethy
Conrad FreethyBronze statues, cobbled streets, medieval shuttered windows, crenellated gables… a walk around Bruges is like stepping into the work of a Flemish master. Between tasting regional specialities such as steaming mussels and any of over 300 local beers, a canal ride in this “Venice of the North” provides a fine introduction. Linger on the Market Square with its towering belfry as it peels the hour. Visit the Beguinage, ancient almshouses that surround a sea of daffodils in springtime. Gaze at Michelangelo’s Madonna and Child, said to be the artist’s only marble to have made it north of the Alps. Watch as busy fingers play with lace bobbins, then come away with fabulous filigree mementos.
