Welcome to Bruges

Get yourself to Bruges (or as the locals call it, Brugge) for a magical city break that’s unlike anywhere else in Europe. The medieval town is like stepping into a fairytale with quaint cobbled streets, charming windmills, historic bridges and stretching canals to discover. Step inside the cosy Belgian chocolate shops, sample local beer in a traditional pub, go for a cycle around Minnewater Lake or admire the city’s Gothic architecture on Burg Square. For all you need to know about Bruges, this page has you covered with the best advice and recommendations to make your Belgian adventure one to remember…

  • Don’t assume that the local native language in Bruges is French. Most Belgians actually speak Dutch/Flemish too

  • Avoid shopping on a Sunday as most shops are closed

  • If you’re asked to pay over €2,30 for a regular beer or over €3 for a waffle, get outta there

  • Don’t use public transport. Bruges is quite small which means you can walk or cycle pretty much everywhere 

  • Carry cash as some local bars and restaurants don’t accept card payments

  • Rent a lime green bike from the hostel for €10 a day or €6 for 3 hours.
