What makes this tour special

Enjoy a privately guided day trip to the beautiful, medieval city of Bruges just an hour by train from Brussels. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a fairytale place, with majestic gothic buildings situated along its dreamy canals, Bruges is considered one of the most picturesque cities in Europe.

On your private tour, you will: 

Meet your guide at a designated meeting point near Brussels central station and enjoy a scenic, relaxing train ride (just over 1 hour) to arrive in Bruges, a UNESCO World Heritage site. From the station, enjoy a full-day walking tour of the hidden gems and magnificent highlights of this medieval city, captured in time. 

Picture postcard perfect, and sometimes referred to as the Flemish Venice because of its tranquil canal ways, Bruges is famous for its quaintly cobbled streets and majestic medieval gothic architecture, beautiful views from Rosary Quay and the Lake of Love, and is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.  

Admire the soaring medieval towers and spires, the calm reflections of the almshouses, locks, sky and trees in the still waters of the canal ways; wander down narrow alleys, emerge onto medieval squares and enjoy the vibrant buzz of the marketplaces, some of which have been active since the 10th century

Enjoy a guided tour of the Church Museum containing a masterpiece by Michelangelo, and learn about the history of Bruges from the Celtic, Roman-Gallo period through to its important trading role in the middle ages.  

Enjoy a relaxing return train ride back to Brussels, where your tour ends. Your guide will show you how to get back to your hotel or find a nice restaurant for dinner.
