Bruges – 41/16

Bruges by Night

Bruges, the city of chocolate and beer… Basically, heaven 🙂 If you read my posts regularly, you’ll know that Bruges was on my wishlist for a city trip for quite some time. I was there previously but never spent much time there. This time we spent 3 full days there and it is still not enough. The city seems to have many day tourists that just stay for one day, often not even over night. We noticed a lot of Americans but also travellers from all over the world. The city is friendly and gave us a welcome feeling. Yes, tourists are money and you can see and feel that in Bruges, too but not as badly as in other places. 8 Euro seems to be the standard entrance fee… If in doubt, it’s gonna be 8 Euro.

Going back to the fact that many people only stay for the day – it’s not enough. Really, it isn’t. If you want to see the city, do a guided tour, some shopping, taste some beer, chocolate, mussels and chips, maybe visit a museum, be prepared to come back!

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be posting about the activities that we did and how we enjoyed our stay. It might give you a few ideas when you are planning on going.

The picture was taken near the old fish market and seems to be a famous and popular location for photographers (I can understand why). The view is on quite a few post cards and will be in quite a few photo albums and on many Facebook profiles. Watch this space for more info about Bruges.

...you will find a pot of gold. The truth is that none has ever found the end of the rainbow or the promised pot of gold. I haven't found them either but I have found many wonderful places during my travels in Europe. Come follow me and see the world with my eyes. Whenever I think I have found the most wonderful place, I know that I will continue to search, discover and travel. I know that I will find new places and that I will again think that they are the most wonderful places that I've ever seen. This a personal project where I want to share my travel experience, passion for photography and creativity with you.
