    Post Offices (posterijen)

    Post Box

    Favorite thing: The main Post office in Bruges is at Markt 5.
    Opening times are Mon-Fri 9am-5pm plus Sat mornings. Smaller post offices close for lunch from noon until 2pm. Mail boxes are red (see pic) and often docorated with a white bugle. They are either free standing or attached to walls. Stanps can also be purchased from souvenir shops and bookstores.

    Belgian Chocolate

    Fondest memory: Being able to walk down a street and finding a chocolate shop. You can go in and buy a selection of chocolates. There are just so many varieties you just have to buy a whole load.

    If you are unsure about what a chocolate is then ask and you may be able to try one or peice of one before you buy.

    And I can tell you Belgian chocolates are some of the best in the world.

    Brugge Locals are not that freindly

    by pigletsmom Written Mar 6, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Brugge is used to getting so many tourists a year, that it seemed to me that the locals were not very friendly and quite jaded by all the visitors. Even the people working in the tourist office were rather cold and aloof. I don't think they even smiled. I had a restaurant owner get rather nasty with me because I wanted to split a meal with my freind. He was absolutely furious and asked us to leave. Any way, that was my experience.

    Have a truffle or two...or three...or four

    In the making

    Favorite thing: Stop at two or three different chocolate shops. My first taste of honest to goodness hand made Belgian Chocolate came from Pralinette(Wollestraat 31b). I chose a champagne filled truffle to grace my palette. The prices were much more affordable than I expected..I brought tons of it home for family and friends who still believe that I splurged on them!

    Fondest memory: At one of the chocolate shops I purchased 3 sets of chocolate shaped breasts complete with pink nipples. At dinner that night I presented them to the 3 young men that I was traveling with for dessert. To our surprise the breasts had a cream filling!
