Beautiful Bruges in Photos

Colourful buildings, medieval architecture, peaceful canals, Belgian beers and chocolate shops galore…must be in Bruges!

As I walked along the quaint cobbled streets of Bruges, the clippety-clop of horses hooves drawing closer, I thought “How have I been to Belgium 3 times before and I’ve never been to Bruges?” 

Prior to this trip I had only ever been to Antwerp and Dinant.

However, this time round I was to discover Lokeren, Bruges and Ghent. After rocking out to Selah Sue and Orbital at Lokerse Feesten in Lokeren for #fiaf12, I took the train to Bruges to stay for one night at Martin’s Relais Oud Huis.

Walking around the city, I felt like I was in a movie set. To put it quite simply, Bruges is stunning. It’s a beautiful city and unbelievably quaint. Yes it may be overrun with tourists during the summer time, but that doesn’t detract from its beauty.

There are some places in the world that are so damn pretty it cannot be put into words. So here are 23 photos to prove just how beautiful Bruges actually is!

Thanks to Visit Flanders-Brussels for hosting me in Belgium for Flanders is a Festival. As always, opinions are my own.

Hi I'm Victoria, a British girl from Manchester. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and find a way to make money at the same time. I now call London home, although I still travel whenever I can. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and see the world.

    This is a lovely photo essay – the large photos really come to life on the screen. My favourite shot is of the dog in the window – that’s just soooo cute!
