Bruges is only 120km from Calais and 20km from the seaside resort of Zeebrugge. Whether you fancy a romantic break or just a weekend away let Bruges charm you with its richness and diversity. It is in our opinion one of Europe's most attractive cities. It's fairly accessible from the channel ports, typically taking under two hours to reach from Calais.
Bruges is famed for its cultural attractions in general and art and architecture in particular. One of the outstanding features of the museum collections maintained in the city is its depth and scope. In a tour of the local municipal[al museums you can find, fine arts, potters, silver, folklore and much more.
Check directly with each museum for specific opening times, prices and exhibition details. This is a small selection .
The city centre has UNESCO World Heritage Site status and a population is around 120,000. The greater metropolitan area extends as far as Zeebrugge on the coast. It's one of the cities known as 'The Venice of the North'.
