Holiday apartments in beautiful Bruges
Some of the holiday rentals in Bruges lie in old buildings. If you are looking for some historical charm, choose to stay in such homes. Once you have unpacked and settled down in your apartment, you can set off for some fun and sightseeing. You can start your journey by mapping out a trip through the city centre and taking in buildings, such as the 13th century belfry or the famous Church of Our Lady. This church features the second tallest brickwork tower in the world but a visit inside this grand building will reveal the magnificent sculpture of the Madonna and Child. Some other sights that you can take in when you stay in Bruges are canals, churches, markets and cycling trails. As far as facilities go, the holiday rentals Bruges has on offer cater to your needs by providing homes with facilities like swimming pools, hot tubs or gardens and the beautiful city centre has even been marked as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Staying in Bruges gives you a good opportunity to visit museums, such as the Bruges Museum and Groeninge Museum which are unique for their collections of art. You will always find cultural events on offer, no matter the time of year that you visit this great city. Much of the city is very old, with some buildings dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries and even earlier but to see a truly beautiful historic building, visit the Beguinage, which dates back to 1245. One speciality that Bruges offers is Chocolate, so find some time here to sample the world famous Belgian produce. A tasting session is a great way to spend the afternoon with that special someone and will allow you to try the best on offer.
Romantic days out with that special someone
Bruges is shaped by its canals and a canal trip will give you a great insight into the city and give your feet some rest. Many of our holiday apartments are even located by the canals, offering you a nice place to relax on your doorstep. If you enjoyed the canals and architecture of Bruges, why not visit another Benelux country? The Netherlands are a great place to visit from Bruges and you could even visit the seaside resort of Cadzand in Zealand if you want a relaxing seaside retreat. Finally, Prague is a lovely historical city that is perfect if you enjoy learning about the past and exploring culture.
If you are looking for a really romantic day-out, Loppem Caste just outside the city is a stunning neo-gothic stately home with extensive gardens. Embark on a horse and carriage trip through the city centre and finish your afternoon up with one of Belgium’s dark or white beers, of which there are plenty to try. One of the reasons that Bruges is so loved for romantic trips is the high quality of dining establishments here, which takes cues from French and Dutch culture alongside a tendency to serve generous portions. Stoverij is a hearty beef casserole cooked in beer and Mussels are another favourite, as is all seafood in Belgium. As the sun sets, sophisticated Cocktail bars are the place to be where you can reminisce over old times and toast to the future alike. Bruges is a beautiful city that was practically made for romantic city breaks. Stay in one of the Bruges Apartments for a truly unforgettable stay and take home some fond memories of this classy city with that special someone.
