With its lacework of narrow cobbled streets, gabled houses and tree lined canals, together with the friendliness of the Flanders people, Bruges is one of the most beautiful towns in Europe. Often described as the ‘Venice of the North’, Bruges was untouched by the industrial revolution that ravaged other European cities in the 19th century. You can stroll through the old streets or take a delightful trip on the canals. Time seems to stand still in these unspoilt surroundings where lace makers work at their intricate craft. Watch the horse drawn carriages trot past and sample the delicious handmade chocolates.
