Sisters Hen Weekend.

by BeckyBogle

Hello, Im new to this thing so be nice!

I'm trying to plan my sisters hen weekend for the 3rd weekend in August this year. She has expressed an interest in Bruges and we have seen a fab looking house that would hold our group.

Is there much to do in Bruges for a Hen Party do you think? Any suggestions welcomed!

by BeckyBogle

Thats a great start-thanks! Do you know about Ghent at all? Is it livelier than Bruges do you think?

Re: Sisters Hen Weekend.

I think that Bruges would be a fantastic place for your hen party. There are lots of restaurants and shops, think chocolate and lace. The "old town" area is walkable and architecturally charming. They have carriage rides, canal rides and some interesting places to tour that should keep you busy for a weekend.

Thank you. What about nightlife?

Re: Sisters Hen Weekend.

by lmkluque

I'm sure that there is plenty of nightlife in Bruges, especially as it will be the summer season with lots of tourists to entertain.

Also, it might be interesting to take a train ride one evening, to a larger city for an added nightlife experience. Antwerpen or Brussels wouldn't take much longer than an hour's train ride or if you and your sisters are really young, Mons is a university town with lots of nightlife going on.

Thank you for your suggestions.

You are welcome!

Also, I agree with the suggestion that you look at the Bruges travel guide on VT, lots of specific suggestions to give you a feel for this lovely city.

I hope you have a wonderful time!

Depends on what you want to do, I think.

If your hen weekend will be about enjoying a new place together, exploring some history, taking a canal ride, having good meals in restaurants and sampling the local beers and chocolate then Brugge or Ghent are both suitable.

Brugge is absolutely lovely, with lots of beautiful walks and lots of beautiful architecture and lots of cafes/bars/restaurants to try the numerous Belgian beers. And lots of chocolate too, of course.

Ghent also has lots of the above..but it is also a univeristy city, so there are lots of student-y type places about.

My personal preference would be for Brugge.

But if your hen weekend will be more about partying and getting drunk (please do not take offence at this comment) I suspect you will be better suited to Ghent.

This is also a great house, I included in some of my private tours. I wonder if it is the same house.....its called Casa da Vinci, and it is on the bottom op this page.

Travel Tips for Brugge

Center of Brugge

by gkitzmil

Belgium likely has the most beautiful centers of towns of any country I have visited. While many are larger (Beijing, Mexico City) those in Belgium are beautiful. It alternated between clouds and sun the day we visited but this is the picture I captured of the center of Brugge

Ezelpoort

by Nathalie_B

Only four out of nine fortified city gates have survived. This one has the funniest name Ezelpoort, which means Donkey Gate. Originally it was built at the 14th century, but it also had to be rebuilt several times.
It is located away from the city center, well it’s a city gate after all, so you’ll have to walk a bit. The area is very nice, right by the Donkey Gate there is a nice little park with enormous amounts of swans and ducks.

Make a little boat trip

by irisbe

This is one of the locations in Bruges where you can hire a seat on one of the sightseeing boats.
The statue on the bridge is that of Johannes Nepomuc, favorit Saint of Prague.
This pictures is taken from the Dyver.

Of Bridges and Asterix Characters

by bpacker

Since this is a touristy place, almost everybody speaks English here, though French, Flemish and Dutch are more widely spoken.
Talking about the Dutch language, it is quite a misnomer to assume that Bruges ( say broo-gah ) is derived from “brug,” the Dutch word for bridge. Yup, folks just assume that since there are so many bridges over here! However, it comes from the Norse “bryggja,” meaning landing stage, because the city was a commercial port of call for Vikings trading along the North Sea coast. Ho, yessiree, the place was swamped with Asterix characters at one point of time, buying chocolates and cloth...

My local custom!

by irisbe

Whenever I am in Bruges, I will go to the Garre; and have a Garre beer. It is only tapped there and no place else.
With 13 % it is a verrrry strong beer and you are but allowed to have max 3 of them.
My local custom is to take my visitors to this pub and let them taste this beer.
Hidden in a little alley, they might miss this pub!
Cheers!!!
