Brugge is not called The venice Of The North without a reason. The city is dominated by the many canals and bridges. They give Brugge a unique atmosphere.
You can also go on a boat tour around teh city. This will cost you approximately 15 Euros for a 45 minute tour.
The city, then one of the leading trade and woolen-goods manufacturing centers of the world, flourished until the end of the 15th century. About that time, it began to decline, primarily because of the closing of the Zwyn River by accumulated silt. As a consequence, the weaving industry disintegrated, and the guilds collapsed.
When you leave the Minnewater behind you, you will come to the locker's house. In front of it you have a nice view over the canals with the Beguinage and Beguinage church as background.
This is one of the canals where you pass if you make a boat trip.
Brugge is just so so beautiful, and if you love old buildings you will totatally fall in love with the place, I would say its well worth a visit!!
The system of canals in Brugge has some exceptionally beautiful spots, take the time to wander along the banks.
Bruges, one of the most romantic cities in the world, with its canals, bridges and medieval houses. It´s better go with your soulmate. But go there anyway ...
The sceneries of the canals like painting!!! It is so beautiful! It is no bad to visit the canals and bridges on foot as you can stop by whenever you like!!!
Brugge has very many bridges, over the intricate web of canals that run through the town.
The boat tours are very interesting and recommended on a good day.
Taking a tour boat around the cities canals is a good option to see the city.... (Too cold on this wintry day, though...)
You can't miss them - but it is worth taking a boat trip to really see the canals from a fish's eye view...
