In Bruges

Bruges is a picturesque town in Belgium complete with old stone bridges, interesting architecture and charming windmills. The town is a quick 50 minutes by train from Brussels.

Bruges is a time capsule. The place maintains original buildings dating back to Medieval times. The town has been called the Venice of the North because of the winding canals crossing the city center. A day is sufficient to just wander around and grab a meal.
