Visit the Venice of the North during this exceptional one day trip. Through the winding cobble stone streets in the historic heart of the city, our audioguide will explain the history of Bruges ,the Flemish capital and UNESCO World Heritage site. As you listen to the commentary, you will admire this medieval city which has preserved the splendor of its brilliant architecture including the Grand-Place and belfry palaces. In summer you will also ride on the famous, romantic canals, and thus observe the city, a genuine outdoor museum, from another point of view.
Travel the beautiful and scenic Northern motorway toward Belgium — after a stop to stretch and rest, cross the border into historic Bruges, or Brugge, before noon. One of the most perfectly preserved medieval towns in Europe, Bruges is a remarkable and charming display of the life and times of the old Flemish masters.
Unforgettable stops will include Brugge´s magnificent Grand Place with its quaint houses and decorated facades, the Halles covered market, the Place du Bourg and Saint Sang Basilica, the Gothic style Town Hall and the Beguinage Convent.
