Visit Bruges, Belgium’s “Venice of the North”! The UNESCO World Heritage city of Bruges (or Brugge if you speak Dutch) is a pristine example of old world architecture and culture. Canals and windmills surround the city center, where you will find countless open squares and beautiful architecture in a city which celebrates its culture. Climb the 366 steps to the top of the 83 meter high bell tower where 47 bells chime out the time every 15 minutes. See the Basilica of the Holy Blood, and the world famous relic it houses, or Michelangelo’s Madonna and Child in the Church of Our Lady. Tempt your taste buds at the French Fry Museum, the Chocolate Museum or the Bruges Beer Museum, and dine an your choice of Bruges’ award winning pubs and restaurants where you will find regional specialties like Belgian Waffles smothered with your choice of sweet fruits, sauces and creams, Flemish Beef or Rabbit Stews and of course the Belgian national dish, Mussels and Fries. Bruges is a must-see city with so many options that instead of a guided tour, you will want your very own tour guide. Download a free e-travelguide for your phone or tablet from Army Libraries, and keep your own personal tour guide in your pocket. You will enjoy your day in Bruges.
