Holiday In Bruges

Some people think heaven is a place filled with chocolate and chips, gorgeous city streets and all your wildest dreams come true. 
Well, that sounds a lot like holidays in Bruges, Belgium. Between seriously quirky museum tours and cafes where you can shamelessly stuff your face, the capital of West Flanders is lined with historic sites and peaceful canals. If Colin Farrell’s cinematic shenanigans come to mind, push them aside, because Bruges is chill as…fudge, and trust us, the Belgians know fudge. If you’re in a hurry to slow down real fast, scoop up some Bruges package deals with lastminute.com.au and get a head start to “the Venice of the North”!

Things to Do in Bruges

When in Bruges, start at the beginning. Located in right in the middle of the city, the Historic Centre of Bruges is a small district that showcases centuries of architecture, from the Middle Ages to the present. Stomp through the open Burg Square and listen to all 47 bells toll from Belfort Tower before you give your Bruges holiday over to the 15th century at Historium Brugge—an interactive experience of the city’s “Golden Age”. As long as there’s chocolate, any century is fine by us. Oh wait, there is! In fact, Bruges is home to Choco-Story: The Chocolate Museum, Bruges Beer Museum and the Friet Museum—yes, a museum of delicious chips. Planning a hot date? Finish the day at the Diamond Museum, where you’ll learn that they might not be forever after all, but they sure are pretty. As the sun sets, hop in one of our Bruges car hire deals and drive to the coast for unbeatable views of the North Sea.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

We know you’re planning save extra room in your suitcase for chocolate—chocolate you’re going to buy with the money you saved on our Bruges packages. But where to start? Pretty much anywhere! You could visit dozens of chocolatiers on one holiday, and it’s not like you’ll go hungry along the way. For a little more variety, stick to the historic centre and wander around Market Square, where you’ll find high-end department stores and local vendors together.

Bruges has chips, chocolate and beer up to its ears. What more do you need? OK, OK. For a more balanced dining experience, you can add scrumptious seafood, fish stews, stoemp—like bangers and mash deluxe—and speculoos, the national cookie. Sorry, brought it back to the sweets, but this is Bruges we’re talking about!

We’ve already said Bruges is a pub hub. Makes sense, given Belgian beer is arguably the best in Europe (don’t tell Germany!). The locals keep their nightlife habits on the down low, sipping their brewskies and wine to the soundtrack of live music. If things get really crazy, you might end up busting a move at the bar, but otherwise, leave your dance shoes at home.

What’s Next?

We know you’ve already switched to researching the best Belgian chocolate-makers. Book cheap holidays to Bruges with lastminute.com.au, so you can put your time and money toward a tummy full of goodies and an itinerary full of…relaxing.
