Bruges is like a dream. So beautiful, fantastic chocolate and terrific beer. Safe and easy to get around.
I loved Brugge. It was one of my sweetest travel memories. I was shopping at a lace shop in the medieval village and stepped outside to newly falling snow. I felt like I was in a dream. It was so beautiful. I recommend climbing the bell tower. Awesome experience.
Bruges is a beautiful city. I would recommend booking a walking tour, most are 'free' but you are expected to tip your guide. Just wandering the streets and exploring the shops easily takes up a whole day. It is a really safe city and most bars are open until 1/2am and it's such a nice vibe walking round at night. I would definitely recommend hiring bikes as well, everyone rides bikes in Bruges! I cycled up to Damme which is a small town about 30 mins up the canal. It is a very flat city so it is easy to cycle. Food/drink recommendations: ODA rooftop bar (great views!), Bar Jus, Bar 'N.
