Hotel Reservations in Bruges
One look over the vibrant, ornate streets of Bruges from its lofty belfry and you will be spellbound. Intricate medieval architecture and a whimsical old-world feel still dominate the city. The churches, luxury hotels and squares all radiate the affluent past Bruges has enjoyed.
The view up at the belfry from the Markt square is no less splendid. The thriving plaza is at the heart of Bruges's café, boutique and sightseeing. Listen for the tolling of the 47 bell carillon from the thirteenth century bell tower's top as you stroll. The Burg city square is the smaller, less teeming answer the Markt. Here, over a Half Moon Belgian brew, you will meet locals and get their best advice on the city's touted handmade lace and chocolate shops.
Admire the Church of Our Lady and its soaring brickwork spire. Inside the chapel the priceless marble Madonna and Child sculpture by Michaelangelo is revered and treasured. You will find arresting vantage points of this landmark from across the canals, from your luxury hotel, whilst meandering through narrow cobbled streets and even from historic St Janshuismolen windmill, a preserved archetypal landmark from 1770 that perches just outside city walls.
During the lively summer months you can visit Bruges and enjoy cultural fairs and music festivals of all types serving gaiety, beer and hearty eats. There are traditional accordion bands showcasing their talents to modern electronica bands to mellow jazz. In December Bruges resembles a twinkling, frosted Christmas card and it is tradition to hold a holiday market all month. Mulled wine, roasted chestnuts and storybook snow-crusted stalls only add to the Belgian enchantment Bruges exudes.
