Guided visit of Bruges

Bruges is a city that will capture your heart. It is a city of human proportions, but one that can never be truly fathomed. Its history has made it great, a fact that garnered it the title of a Unesco World Heritage City. Retaining the mysteries of the Middle Ages and unashamedly exuberant, Bruges has been an international metropolis for centuries.

Bruges' golden age may have been from the 12th to 15th centuries—when it was a busy trading port—yet this medieval city remains one of the world's most beautiful culture hubs. Laden with Gothic architecture and home to early Flemish painters, it is a city that has captured hearts for centuries.

Bruges is an outstanding example of a medieval settlement that has maintained its historic fabric as it evolved over the centuries. As one of the commercial and cultural capitals of Europe, Bruges—a showcase of original Gothic constructions, which formed part of its identity—developed cultural links to different parts of the world.

Water has played a crucial role in the birth and development of Bruges. When visiting, you will see how its canals and lake played an important part in the city's development - as well as adding a unique sense of charm and beauty to this historic city. By taking a boat ride through the canals you will be rewarded with unexpected views, hidden romantic corners and secret gardens.
