The city of Bruges
Bruges is a historical town situated in the lowlands of Belgium. In the Middle Ages, it was the main trading centre and port of northern Europe. Nowadays it is one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval cities and its beautiful buildings, beguinage, quiet back alleys and serene canals lend it a totally unique atmosphere.
A selection of hotels has been made where a reduced fee has been negociated.
You can reserve accommodation here or you can look for a hotel of your own choice on www.hotels-brugge.org. Since Bruges is very much favoured by tourists, it is highly recommended to make your hotel reservation as soon as possible.
