We were in Brugge 7 years ago and enjoyed it a lot, and love the beers. We are going again for 5 nights this September. Can any kind member give me an idea of what prices to expect to pay in € for good beers in the well know bars such as Le Garre, Brugs Beertje, Cambrinus etc? I know beer prices often depend on alc% strength, but we would just appreciate some idea so we know how much money to take!! Replies greatly appreciated, thank you! John
I am travelling to Belgium to stay with friends in the west of the country in the summer. I am considering having an overnight stay in Brugge on the way there, partly to break the journey and also because it is a place that I have always wanted to visit. I will have my 3 children with me aged 14, 11 and 9 and wonder what Brugge has to interest them. I am very easily pleased but my children less so and I do not want cries of "I'm bored" throughout our time there! If Brugge is not a place for kids of that age, I may be better to carry on to our destination. Any advice greatly appreciated.....
My family is planning to spend 3 or 4 days in Brugge, I was wondering if anyone could post some links of apartments that might be available for rent? Links to bed and breakfasts would be ok too.
Would love to find an Abbey that we could visit. Thanks, Rick
We are going to Brugge for New Years Eve, just wondered if anyone had any ideas on where to spend it? Market Place or a restaurant maybe?
The English version isn´t working. Did I understand right, that this is open every day? Is there English tours every day? Should the tour be booked? When is the latest tour? I´m not even sure, if this all is told at the page.. pakhuis.info/Framenederlands...
We are going to Brugge by car in the summer.We were planning to be over night,but now we have started to think,that maybe we could go to Gent for night.Hotels are more expensive at Brugge,and I started to wonder,is there anything special at night-time?I noticed that there is no night-life-tips at VT at all. I don´t mean nightclubs or anything"wild",but would we miss anything,if we would come in the morning,and leave before dark? Sometimes we have been n very lovely and romantic town a day (like Rothenburg ob der Tauber) and when we like to go eat late at night,there has been only 2-3 restaurants open,and whole town so quiet,that it would have been the same if we would have slept at another town.
My wife and I are planning an August trip to Bruges, and we want to go to the beach. Does anyone know the best way to get to the beaches near Bruges? Is the train the best way? Which beach would you recommend? Will it be good weather for the beach in August - we are assuming it will be - ? Thanks!
4 of us will be spending a week in Brugge in October. We have rented an apartment in the old city area, and plan to use it as a base for day trips. We don't plan to rent a car, but use trains for transportation. Any suggestions for "don't miss" day trips? Thanks --
Hi We are going to be in Brugge over New Year. We would like to see the city and surroundings by canal, however I hear the boat trips do not run in Dec/Jan. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to hire a small boat? I am a professional Boatmaster and RYA Inland Waterways Instructor, so I am well qualified to handle small craft on canals. All the best Phil
Hi, So, this trip is going to be the most special one of all so I need some local info. First, where would be the most romantic part of Brugge to stay in? Second, a good romantic restaurant to have a special dinner in? Third, would anybody be able to recommend some place to go to that is really romantic, preferably quiet, in Brugge? All ideas and replies will be greatly appreciated.
During a recent visit to Brugge we visited the Jerusalem Church. Off the main area is a small room of worship where there is a cross covered by a grille. Within the cross there is a glass panel - does anyone know what is within this panel? Also, up the stairs to the alter, again there are glass panels, this time on the alter. These glass panels have something behind them, does anyone know what these items are? We were unable to get close enough to have a proper look. The guide books and web sites don't seem to give any information.
Hello. I know that this is a long-shot, but I'm trying to recall the name of a restaurant in Brugge run by a lovely young woman. I think her name might have been Natalie? We visited on a very cold day in November, and I think that my brain was too frozen to remember the name. The tables had a book containing a story about how the restaurant opened. It was very small. The menu was simple, omelettes, salads, coffee, soup. Specials were written on little chalk-boards at each table. The coffee area and cash register were at the entrance. The walls were exposed brick. It was down a little side street. I've spent way too many hours looking for the name. My now-fiance proposed the same day that we visited this restaurant! Any suggestions by locals or those who visited would be greatly appreciated. I want the name so that I can return on our anniversary next year! Thanks so much!
Hi! We will be driving from Rotterdam to Brugge for a day trip. Could you recommend the best place to park our car so that we may enjoy the city on foot? ty
Travelling from Brugge to Amsterdam Christmas period by train. I suppose there's no direct service, so will the change be at Brussells or Antwerp? All this hassle cos I don't do flying!!
