Bruges Sightseeing & Canals
Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage City and perhaps Belgium's most perfectly preserved medieval town with beautiful architecture and many canals. A guided walking tour through the historic centre reveals many gems and ends with a 30-minute canal tour.
After a 30-minute drive from Oostende, you arrive at Bruges (or Brugge in Flemish) where your guided walk starts. Often called Die Scone or “the beautiful”, the charm of this lovely medieval city is captivating. Smaller and more contained than most other old Flemish cities, Bruges gives the impression that you have stepped back in time.
Walk with your guide through narrow, winding cobblestone streets, passing by picturesque scenes with ancient buildings, tree-lined canals and gabled facades. See the bustling marketplace, Belfry Tower, Town Hall and Chapel of the Holy Blood.
The highlight of this excursion is undoubtedly the 30-minute canal tour. While sitting back in a small boat, you ride along the serene waterways of this romantic and historic city. Bruges is full of lace and chocolate shops, and you get free time to search for the perfect souvenir.
Your guide will lead you by the legendary “Lake of Love” on the way back to the coach and return trip to the ship
