Bruges — 4 nights

Venice of the North

The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Visit Historic Centre of Brugge and The Princely Beguinage Ten Wijngaarde for their historical value. Let the collections at Groeningemuseum and Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bruges: Beach De Haan (in De Haan), Ghent (Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen Nature Reserve & Gravensteen) and Plage d'Ostende (in Ostend). There's much more to do: sample the tasty concoctions at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica of the Holy Blood, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedrale Saint Sauveur de Bruges, and get engrossed in the history at Onze-Lieve-Vrouw ter Potterie.

To plan Bruges vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Washington DC, USA to Bruges is an approximately 11-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Washington DC to Bruges. When traveling from Washington DC in March, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Bruges: temperatures range from 50°F by day to 36°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Tue) to allow time to drive to Brussels.

Belgium travel guide

4.3
Specialty Museums · Historic Sites · Nightlife
A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
