The area and how to find your way around
Located northwest of Belgium, Bruges is the capital of West Flemish province. A charming town of approximately 117,000 inhabitants, located only 90 km from Brussels and 49 km from Gent. The territory of Bruges is quite flat, so it lends itself to bicycle tours, even with small children. In addition, the bicycle is a means widely used by the locals themselves to walk the streets, since the narrow streets of the medieval layout are quite narrow and there is hardly any room for parking inside the city. If you come by car, it is best to book your rental in the suburbs, but if you have arrived by train or plane and want to be close to everything, it is best to book in the same centre.A city frozen in the Middle Ages
The old town of witches is declared a World Heritage Site and is the most visited place in the whole country. One of the most attractive centres of the entire European continent, as it preserves intact the architectural structures of the Middle Ages. As it happens in other cities like Amsterdam} or Stockholm. The anonymity in which the city lived for more than four centuries has made it one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world today. But in addition, the beautiful canals that cross all the locality give it a great charm, which is why it is known as "the Venice of the North". Channels that became its main means of communication with nearby regions and that made it an important shopping centre during the Middle Ages. What are you waiting for to book your holiday rental in Bruges and let yourself be enchanted by its charms?
