Meandering through alleyways and over bridges, while marvelling at the historic buildings, and delectable scents come out of restaurants. That’s Bruges in a nutshell. Many buildings were enhanced in the 19th century; restored or rebuilt in a neo-gothic style, though many houses are centuries older. Boat tours on the canals are very popular, as are the many restaurants and bars in the city. It’s a wonderful place to visit, especially outside of peak season.
