Bruges is also referred to as the Venice of the North. Since 2000, Bruges has been listed on UNESCO’s list of world heritage sites. In between the picturesque little lanes, you may get the feeling that you have gone back in time to the Middle Ages.
Bruges has a diverse range of museums which provide an impressive overview of the city’s history. Why not visit the well known Diamond museum, the Bruggemuseum or the Choco-Story chocolate museum?
One of the real eye-catchers in the city is Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk, a church that stretches to 122 metres high and, as such, is the highest brick-built building in the world.
You can find quaint shops on the Eiermarkt and the Huidenvettersplein. And, of course, Bruges is also known for its atmospheric pubs, exuberant restaurants and the many chocolate shops.
