Bruges, Belgium

Andrée-Anne was in Bruges 10 years ago and it is still one of her favorite town. Without it being planned, we stayed in the same small hostel from her last visit. It still looks the same so she recognised it right away as we walked in. Belgium being famous for beers, we tried a few different ones from the bar downstairs. We also enjoyed an happy hour at 1 Euro a beer, the cheapest one in a bar so far on our trip. We also went for mussels and fries as they are famous too, but they were deceiving as we were out of season. We really enjoyed walking in all the small streets surrounded with old buildings and canals. We also went up the Belfort, a tall tower on the main Markt Place containing the famous carillon. The view from that high was amazing even for a steep 18 Euro and 366 steps.

  1. Brilliant post! Such helpful tips might come in handy for tourists who are planning to get a Belgium Tourist Visa and visit some charming places like Bruges. I recently got my Visa and will be travelling there to enjoy the 1st month of the New Year. This interesting article might just help me or my friends when we visit there and try to check out some nice attractions with our friends or family.
