Bruges (also called the "Venice of the North") is one of the most beautiful medieval towns in europe. Bruges is situated at about 100 km. from Brussels, and can very easily be reached by train from Brussels main stations. Bruges is unique in Europe: a living city of human proportions where you can wander to your heart's content in virtually unspoiled surroundings. Known as the Venice of the North because of its network of canals and its narrow streets with their typical facades, this city takes you back to long forgotten times! You can admire Bruges by boat or on foot to get a new perspective of what most people agree is "Europe's best preserved mediaeval city", and enjoy the Flemish cuisine at any level from exclusive restaurant to cheaper - but good - bistro. Where else can you ride a bike along a canal, munch mussels and wash them down with the world's best beer, savor heavenly chocolate, and see Flemish Primitives and a Michelangelo, all within 300 yards of a bell tower that jingles every 15 minutes?
Information about Bruges (spelling "Brugge" in Dutch) can be found on the Bruges tourism website.
