Brugge Weekend 4 Days 22 – 25 March 2019

Brugge once a modest fortification, later a trading centre of world fame and the cradle of Flemish Art, Brugge is now unique in Europe. Wander round this living city in virtually unspoilt surroundings. Whether you intend to study fascinating history or prefer to merely relax in the atmosphere created by it, Brugge provides the perfect break. Admire the Flemish primitivities in museums, such as the Groeninge and St John’s Hospital. Make the acquaintance of Burgundian Dukes in the Gruuthuse Palace or the Church of Our Lady. Watch the lace makers plying their bobbins near the Beguinage, share romantic moments beside the Lake of Love. Listen to the Belfry’s melodious chimes. Cruise along the picturesque canals. Amble past weathered gables in a horse drawn coach. Forget your diet and sample that sumptuous Belgian chocolate.
