Bruges

Bruges, in the northwest of Flemish Belgium, is like a well-preserved medieval city, offering charming churches, canals, squares and cobblestone streets - so much so that Bruges is dubbed the “Venice in the North”. 

The city’s main square, Market, is in the typical western European style: grand, with a monument in the centre, open air restaurants, neo-gothic architecture and horse-drawn carriages. Then there’s the Groeninge Museum, which celebrates Flemish and Belgian art from the 14th to the 20th century. The museum’s main attraction is the collection of ‘Flemish Primitive’ masterpieces. Chocolate lovers will be excited to discover the Choco-Story museum, which traces the history of the cocoa bean back to when it was just a currency. 

For something a little different, visit the Kantcentrum for tailor-made lace workshops. Flanders was home to the development of this delicate material in the 16th century and today you can watch the historic craft in action at the Lace Centre.
