cafe terraces

by robbi123

can anybody tell me the opening & closing dates of the terraces for the cafes in bruges

Re: cafe terraces

By 'terraces' do you mean the tables outside on the pavement area?

If so, I am sure there are no official opening and closing dates. It will depend entirely on the weather and the individual cafe.

And if you choose to sit at one of the outside tables in the Markt, the main square - be prepared to pay highly for a cup of coffee - almost 6 euros last time we were there.

But on a summer evening we were really paying for the experience - the coffee was certainly not worth it! Brugge is still one of my favourite places.

Mine too.

T'Zand is a good place to find lots of slightly-less-expensive cafes & restaurants with outside tables. Most have heaters and 'roofs', so I imagine they try to keep the tables active for as long as possible. With a smoking ban in place, outside tables can draw in custom which might otherwise pass by.

Travel Tips for Brugge

General Friendliness

I've been unable to get in again using the original login name, so have had to adopt a fake persona to reply to you all
It will be Spring when we next visit Brugges and I am so pleased with all the replies on here. The canal bike ride would be wonderful, but unfortunately a handicapped husband would prevent that. The 'bus will do perfectly. Thank you all so much for your courtesy. The Cafe Bars. The Chocolates. The Architecture. The cleanliness of the whole area. The friendliness of the inhabitants

Wander the streets and soak in...

by richiecdisc

Wander the streets and soak in the atmosphere that is the epitome of romance. If you catch Brugge on a day when it is not too crowded, it is hard to find a more beautiful city in Europe. If you go to the best cafes you will find very knowledgeable staff that can help you find that special beer you are looking for. One such place is the Brugs Beertje with barman Chris. He’d go into their immense cellar to find beers I was seeking and often come up with ones I hadn’t even thought of, sometimes not even on the menu. The place was always busy at night so I mostly went early afternoon to get a seat. Besides I had over 100 beers I wanted to try! One evening I found myself there at closing when Chris asked if I wanted to stay with some staff who would have their end of night drink. How could I refuse a lock-in? And what a place to be locked into! We were there for hours and though I was lost some of the time as they spoke in Flemish, they were nice enough to keep me up with what they were saying occasionally and if I spoke up, all answered in English. It is one more amazing thing about Belgians, their great facility with languages. I guess when your mother tongue is an esoteric one; you learn other languages at a young age. Chris spoke Flemish of course, English impeccably well, French (though hated it) and even German. The night wore on and I asked to leave at around four in the morning, they were obviously going to be up all night. I stumbled home through the thoroughly confusing and winding streets of Brugge, only too sad that the frites stands were no longer open, but smiling nonetheless at my good fortune in making new friends and being locked into perhaps the finest beer café in Belgium.

The City Hall

by Toyin

This is the administrative and the judicial and religious centre of Bruges. If the market place is deemed the heart of the town, then the castle square is its cradle.

Today, the square traces 1000 years of Architectural history.

The relic of the Holy Blood

by csordila

The great procession of the Holy Blood held each Ascension Day, when the bishop of Bruges carry the relic of the Holy Blood through the streets of the city. The procession culminates with the veneration of the relic, which is a fragment of cloth with trace of the coagulated blood of Jesus Christ wiped from his body by Joseph of Arimathea.

According to legend, the cloth was brought to Brugge during the Second Crusade by a Duke of Flanders.
It is more likely, however, that the cloth was brought by Baldwin of Flanders ( later the first emperor of the Latin Empire ) from Constantinople during the Fourth Crusade, organized by Doge Enrico Dandolo of Venice and Marquis Boniface of Montferrat, when the city was sacked.

The relic is kept in a rock-crystal vial, which itself is inside a small glass cylinder adorned with a golden crown at each end. Normally it is exposed only on Fridays at a certain time in the Basilica of St. Basil on the Burg Square.

The last procession was held on 21 May 2009.

Adress: Burg 13, 8000 Brugge,
This church is located in the Burg square near the Town Hall.

Dig into the history of...

Dig into the history of Brugge, Flandres and the Lowlands before you go and while you're there. It will give you a new light on many things as the whole world has been influenced by the renaissance that started here as well as in Northern Italy.
