Weekend in a hotel in BrugesFancy old historical cities? Then you should definitely pay Bruges a visit and book one of the many fine Bruges hotels for a weekend or longer. Cobbled streets, with something new and intriguing around every corner. Cute individual shops selling everything from designer clothes, hand made lace and the finest chocolates to some of the high end designer boutiques. Bruges has it all.
I love staying in a hotel in Brugge because it is a city that is easy on the eye, and if you get there, you'll know what I mean. Calming, relaxed and aesthetic. It is also a romantic city, attracting couples much the same way as Paris (but without the exorbitant costs). Spending time in a Bruges hotel will soon convince you of the fact that Bruges is vibrant, alive and is sure to give you a real sense of vitality - it appeals to all ages, so I would recommend it to anyone looking for a quick and cost effective break away. Easy to get to, You can drive over, train it over or plane it over and then relax in one of the lovely character hotels within the city.
Wonderful city trip to Bruges, Belgium!
One of the best reasons to go to Bruges is the food! Many many hotels Bruges offer some of the best gastronomic diners you can imagine. But you can ofcourse also try to keep things simple, what is really nice (particularly on a cold day / night) and whilst taking a leisurely stroll through the city is stopping off at the "Groot Markt" at one of the "Friteurs" and treating yourself to a bag of real Belgian Frites dowsed in mayo, Ketchup and mustard as most flems tend to do, then (and only if there is any room left) you can treat yourself to a large fresh waffle with creme and cherries. Of course the diet needs to be on hold for this experience, but they do often say that the simple things are often the best! Also try to enjoy some of the hotelspecials websites like BookYourHotel.org offer for Bruges!
Finding a favorite hotels Brugge aanbiedingen is like asking to choose your favorite chocolate from a box of creme centres! I love them all. Of course I would seeing as I contract them, though what is important when selecting a promoties hotels Brugge centrum is ensuring that the overall quality and service match the destination type. Generic hotels have no place in a city like Bruges and as most of the Brugge hotels are small and intimate which is ofcourse really nice!

Staying in a hotel in Bruges is at least as good as staying in a hotel in Parijs or in an Amsterdam hotel in the city centre. It's a small city but there's so much to discover. Every tourist should do like me: begin with a guided walking tour to the heart of the city with its magnificent Grand Place filled with quaint houses featuring decorated facades, the Halles - covered market - with its belfry, the Place du Bourg with the Saint Sang Basilica, the Gothic style Townhall and the Beguinage - Beguine Convent. TA cruise on the famous canals is very recommended during the summer season, due to the great weather (usually the best weather around mid july).
During high season, Bruges is absolutely submerged in tourists. ake enough time for lunch and shopping, you might buy some handmade lace or Belgian chocolates...

But although Bruges has known a turbulent history it never gave away its charm and peace. Wondering through the alleys or enjoying an evening walk in the "lake of love" park, the experience of Bruges is incredible. One should stay in this city for multiple days so that every aspect of Bruges can be visited.
The hotels in Bruges surely will warmly welcome you. The choice of hotels in the innercity is hugh. Mostly it are small family hotels with a lot of charm and a fantastic breakfast buffet. Many times the smallest hotels offer the greatest luxury.
Bruges is a city which should be visited during wintertime, the wonderful decoration is something Bruges can be very proud for. Every year there is a skating ground on the Main market square in the shadows of the old belfry.
Restaurants in Bruges are omnipresent. Most of the restaurants will serve you a delicious meal at a correct price ( watch out for pricing on the main market square ) Some restaurants you may consider during your stay in Bruges are restaurant aneth, restaurant curiosa and restaurant arthies. You will not be disappointed.
Bruges is in comparison to Brussels much quieter and more charming to visit, and to Antwerp it just hold a lot more history. Many guests in Bruges start from a hotel in Brussels or a hotel in Antwerp to visit Belgium but they couldn't be more wrong. The European capital Brussels has its charms but is not comparable to Bruges.
I hope you have a very pleasant stay in the world's capital of the 13th century: Bruges.
