Arriving by motorhome

by Wikisnoodle

I'm hoping to travel around the Benelux countries, this April, in a motorhome (6.17mL; 3.1mH) and hoping to spend a day in Brugge (a Friday). I'd be grateful for any suggestions on where best to park up (overnight not required) and what transport to use to get into the centre of things. happy to consider any public transport or own cycles/feet!

Re: Arriving by motorhome

by Wikisnoodle

I have the Caravan Club European books plus the Camping Card map/book plus All the Aires, so I am overloaded with info on overnighting, but these books don't cover parking. I've lost count of the towns I've driven through without finding motorhome parking. Motorhomefacts.com is a possible source, but I've yet to find anything better than local knowledge, when it comes to parking, and just how far it is sensible to drive toward the centre of a city, before getting snarled up in traffic unnecessarily. Thanks for your thoughts.

Re: Arriving by motorhome

by Odinnthor

Having been to Bruges several times, I can say that it is not motorhome friendly. However since you are willing to "roll with the punches", you should be able to manage it.

Fronting a motorcoach tour there, I will say that once you park it, keep it parked. I am going from memory here, but the Aire rail/coach park is where our coach was parked ovenight. There were at least twenty or thirty spaces motor home spaces then.

However that was the old parking site, and I know that there have been some renovations, and although I have not been to the new one, I hear that it is pretty nice, but it costs now, at least E20, perhaps more.

Here is some information that I managed to dig up. Hope it gives you a better perspective.

Also here is what other VT members have to say about parking in Bruges

Here is a site that tells you what is available in Bruges. Scroll almost all the way down and put the curser over the Brugge signs, - it will show you what's what.

Travel Tips for Brugge

Medieval Pilgrimage

by Maidstoneman

Bruge was a centre of pilgrimage throught the Middle Ages as people used to see the `Holy Blood`. Unknown to many the church of the Holy Blood still allows pilgrims to pray in front of and even touch the Holy Blood. Just watch for the posters on the door. Even visitors coming in whilst we were touching it thought that it was an ordinary service, and not one of the most moving experiences of a lifetime. They do not know what an opportunity they missed to be part of living history.

Spring is my favourite season

by Norali

Because the city is so touristy, know that it can be done in Winter or Autumn. Less crowded. Would say that the wet weather is the only negative aspect of a visit in autumn and winter. The cold is not a problem. Anyway, that day, Brugge was less cold than snowy Brussels.
It was crowded along the canals, in the streets but it was strangely quiet.

It's on Spring that it's most nice to stroll in those cobblestoned streets, to sit on their terraces, to spend a quiet time in the Beguinage area.

I've never been in Brugge in summer and would skip it though: and crowded, and noisy, and hot... uuh! Jonquilles and crocuses at the garden of the Beguinage. For this view of the green patch with yellow and white spots, Spring is my favourite season in Brugge.

The beguinage surroundings are one of my favourite popular places in Brugge: so quiet. When lucky, you may see some "sisters" in their black robes walking in a row, silently. Respect the place, keep it quiet.

ISN'T LACE ANY WOMAN'S FAVOURITE??

by eden_teuling

I love visiting the "LITTLE LACE JEWEL", the
best place to go for FLEMISH LACE AND TAPESTRY CENTRE, a family TRADITION since 1895...

The name of the shop is: HET KANTJUWEELTJE, LACE JEWEL.....

Tapestry, splendor of weaving art, made in Belgium, brings warmth and cosiness in your house.

In the photo is THE OWNER OF THE SHOP MAKING HER JEWELS OF LACE and she does so after her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, isn't that impressive?? LACE JEWEL offers you a rich choice of table-cloths, wedding veils, handkerchiefs, blouses, antique lace, tapestries and more, more..

LACEMAKING IS SHOWN EVERY DAY, EVEN ON SUNDAYS...

The shop is open: from 10AM - 18 PM

SKILL and PATIENCE are the MAGIC WORDS...

Swans

by Nathalie_B

In Brugge, swans are everywhere. Well, everywhere close to the water. There were six years in between my visits in Brugge, and the fondest memory was swans.
They definitely do not shy away from the visitors and use every possible moment to beg for food.

There is a nice legend about them I found on the Internet:

"There exists a nice legend about the swans of Bruges. In 1488 the people of Bruges had executed one of the town administrators belonging to the court of Maximilian of Austria, husband and successor of duchess Mary of Burgundy. The town administrator was called 'Pieter Lanchals', a name which means ' long neck'. The Lanchals family coat of arms featured a white swan. Legend has it that Maximilian punished Bruges by obliging the population to keep swans on their lakes and canals till eternity."

Please note that due to Brugge...

by greebo

Please note that due to Brugge becoming the Cultural Capital of Europe that during 2001 most of the museums are closed for refurbishment and a lot of the larger buildings have scaffolding around them.

The people of Brugge are very friendly and helpful and are willing to talk with you. The pace is slow and relaxed. So just take in the atmosphere, relax and enjoy. Also the beer pretty good as well and as for the chocolates - heaven. The chocolates in Brugges are usually made by little independent chocolatiers and are handmade. The picture shows one of the best chocolate houses in Brugges and has been mentioned in various individual travellers books. It is called Chocolatier Dumon and is located on Eiermarks 6.
