Map of Bruges: Practical Tips for Your Visit

  • Bruges is a very walkable city – I recommend exploring the best sites on the Brugge Belgium map on foot.
  • Some of the attractions, like canal cruises from Sint Janshuismolen, are only open for a few months of the year, so do check ahead.
  • I recommend staying centrally so that you’re never far away from the best attractions in Bruges. The Novotel is a good option as it’s relatively inexpensive, comfortable and well-located near the centre.
