    • Miniature Teddy Bears

      Brugge Nov 19, 2014 at 9:17 AM

      The last time I was in Bruges back in 2011 I came a cross a small shop that sold miniature teddy bears (I think it is in a courtyard or small square). I am visiting again in December and would love to go back but can't remember the name of the shop or the street that it is on. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

    • Train schedules from Lille to Bruges...where are they?

      Brugge Dec 1, 2014 at 3:18 AM

      Hi! I'm planning a trip to Bruges for Christmas, but I'm not seeing any train times on the SNCF website! I want to go from Lille to Bruges, and several months ago I looked on SNCF and saw that trains run frequently. I know there are direct trains and some that go from Lille through KORTRIJK. But for all dates after Dec 13, all I see is one train a day to Bruges, going through Paris!!! This is ridiculous, and it's really expensive. Someone at SNCF told me that maybe it's because they just haven't received the train times yet and they will post them later, when they get them. This is fine with me but I want to make sure! I'd be fine with buying my ticket the day of, if only I can be sure there WILL be trains! Does anyone know if this is normal? How can I be sure there will be trains running? Is it possible there aren't going to be trains because of the Christmas holidays???

    • Sunday Opening

      by JamesDaniel80 Online Now May 22, 2014 at 2:24 AM

      Do cafes and restaurants open on Sundays? Only some of my friends and I are taking a cycling trip to Veurne on Sunday and would quite like to sample some local cuisine.

      Thank you

    • Fruit flies?

      by clarems75 Online Now Jul 13, 2006 at 5:50 AM

      My boyfriend and I visited Veurne on Tuesday, 11th July 2006, on our way back to England from Brugge. It seemed like a very lovely picturesque town and we went into the Church which was beautiful, stained glass was lovely. We wandered around the town sqaure that was preparing for a music festival that evening I believe and sat in a cafe and ordered a lasagne and a cool drink.. suddenly we were covered by tiny little flying bugs.. we knocked them away but more came, and more and more.. if you didn't clear your arm for 5 mins and then looked down there would be about 20 on your arms, neck etc

      So, we moved inside and thought we were safe.. suddenly we realised that the door frames, radiators, bar, tables were covered in these little flies (it was like a horror film!) We really wanted to spend a relaxing afternoon in Veurne wandering the shops, the bakery museam etc but we just had to escape.. what was it? was it a one off? a weird fly day? The dead flies in the bar/cafe looked like they'd been there for awhile so maybe not but can anyone explain what these flies are and why the locals didn't seem to be bothered by them but our skin was crawling and they were everywhere...
