    Stop At: Minnewater, 8000 Brugge, Belgium

    One of the entrances to Bruges is the beautiful area known as "Minnewater". The centerpiece is "The Lake of Love" and "The Lovers Bridge". The legend tells us a tragical story about a young woman dying in the arms of her beloved warrior.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Begijnhof, 8000 Brugge, Belgium

    This little piece of world heritage was once the home of the beguines, emancipated lay-women who nevertheless led a pious and celibate life. It is a beautiful garden surrounded by white-coloured houses, and originally was founded in 1245. Today we can find the nuns of the Order of Saint Benedict and several Bruges women who have decided to remain unmarried.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: De Halve Maan Brewery, Walplein 26, Bruges 8000 Belgium

    For centuries the Maes family has been brewing beer in Bruges. Their most famous brands are Brugse Zot and Straffe Hendrik. If you are looking for a very nice lunch or a modern tavern, this is your place to be. Also, you can enjoy all the history of the place and the family through its dedicated museum.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Pass By: Stoofstraat, 8000 Brugge, Belgium

    This narrow alley was originally some kind of forbidden place. Through the centuries this used to be notorious "bathhouses" for the elite and the traders. It was not only to clean themselves... but also they found here the local prostitutes. It had not enough size to become a Red Light District but for sure was a Red Light Street, at least.

    Pass By: Mariastraat, 8000 Brugge, Belgium

    This church of Our Lady dates mainly from the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries. Its tower is the second tallest brickwork tower in the world, but its real treasure is a white marble sculpture known as the Madonna and Child, created by Michelangelo around 1504 and completed in 1506. It was meant originally for Siena Cathedral, but at the end, it was purchased by two Brugean merchants, the brothers Mouscron.

    Stop At: Dijver, 8000 Brugge, Belgium

    Bruges is often called the "Venice of the North". There are so many inner canals and the Dijver is one of them that crosses along the city center. The best pictures for sure can be taken from the Dijver Canal.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Pass By: Gruuthusemuseum, Dijver 17, Bruges 8000 Belgium

    The Gruuthuse was a really rich family that since the 13th century had the monopoly to levy taxes on gruit (an ancient ingredient for making the beer, instead of hops). The palace, as we know today, comes back to the 15th century, when the famous Louis de Gruuthuse added some wings to the previous house and built a chapel connected to the church of Our Lady. Now is a public space where you can enjoy a general museum that contains different collections.

    Stop At: Bruges City Hall, Burg 12, 8000 Brugge, Belgium

    Burg Square is one of the earliest inhabited places in the city. People settled here as early as in the 2nd and 3er centuries of our era. Here, in the 9th century, it used to be a fortress. Now, we can find one of the oldest city halls in the Low Countries (1376-1421) and the Basilica of the Holy Blood (12th-16th century). Inside it, so many people visit every year the venerated relic of the Holy Blood, allegedly collected by Joseph of Arimathea and brought here from the Holy Land by Thierry of Alsace, Count of Flanders, in the 12th century.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: The Markt, Markt, Bruges 8000 Belgium

    This square was used as a marketplace since 958. Today the large square is ringed by banks and many guild houses converted into restaurants, bars, and shops. The most prominent buildings on the square are the Belfry Tower and the Cloth Hall (13th century).

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Pass By: Belfry of Bruges, Markt 7, 8000 Brugge, Belgium

    The most striking tower in Bruges dates back to the 13th century, is 83 meters high, and is protected as a world heritage site. From the top, you can have a stunning view of the city and its surroundings. During all the day, the tower's 47 carillon bells indicate with soft and delightful music which time it is.
