About this tour
Bruges is absolutely worth adding to your Belgium itinerary for many reasons. From its sheer beauty to its history to its opportunities for people watching, beer indulging, and museum seeing, Bruges is a great place to stop. From Amsterdam, you will go to Bruges by bus. During the tour, you will have an introduction to the history of Belgium and cities near the route like Utrecht and Breda both connected with Spanish history (The Netherlands was a Spanish possession for nearly a hundred years, beginning in 1556 when its crown passed to the foreign king Philip II of Spain.) The city of Bruges owes its name to the various bridges you will find in it.
It was declared a World Heritage City in 2000. The guided walking tour in Bruges covers Minnewater or Lake of Love, Markt Square dominated by the Belfry, the Brug Square and Town Hall, and the Church of Our Lady where you can appreciate one of Michelangelo’s masterpieces ‘The Madonna of Bruges.’ At the end of the guided tour, you will be granted time for self-exploration before meeting your guide for the return journey.
