Have you seen that movie? It’s one of my favorites. I remember seeing it when it first came out and being mesmerized by the haunting, sinister architecture of Bruges.
Contrary to the film, Bruges is an absolutely charming and adorable city! I wished I had had at least another day or two in the city. I think I would have skipped a day in Brussels and stayed in Bruges. I had some wonderful recommendations from my good friend Diana including this bar (De Garre), which is a hole-in-the-wall bar at the end of an alley. The beer is 11.5% so they cut you off after 3 drinks…and trust me, you don’t want 3 drinks…you’re feeling it after the first one!
I could go on and on about how much I loved Bruges but I think the photos speak for themselves. Sorry for the excessive amount of photos but really, how do you par down the number of photos to post when you have a city this beautiful?!
Also, next time I come back to this city, I’m bringing my Dad and we’re doing a beer tour of Bruges and then a beer tour of the entire country. Prepare yourself, Dad!
Beguinage. For more information: see here
Michelangelo’s Madonna. One of the few outside of Italy!
Bruges is such a charming little town and I would highly recommend visiting it! If you’re a fan of yummy food and even better beer, you’ve found your paradise IN BRUGES!
