One Day in Bruges Itinerary
One of the most popular cities to visit in Belgium, many consider the medieval fairytale town of Bruges one of the prettiest cities in Europe. Even if you only have one day in Bruges, a day trip is very rewarding.
Beyond the picturesque facade, Bruges invokes thoughts of beer, waffles, chocolate and the black comedy In Bruges. These are the things Bruges is famous for.
Explore Bruges Old Town
There is a lot to see and do in central Bruges, but the central town is so scenic, it is worthwhile allowing a little time just to explore and enjoy the architecture everyone comes to see.

Skyscraper the Bruges Whale
Another reason to explore the canals by foot or boat is to see the magnificent Bruges Whale – the giant blue whale breaching from the canal towards Jan van Eyck square.
Climb the Belfry
The Bruges Belfry towers majestically over the market square. At 83 metres high and with 366 steps winding to the top, a climb may not sound that appealing.
The Basilica of the Holy Blood Of Jesus
This building’s two stand-out features are the richly decorated facade, including gilded statues – which is actually a 16th-century staircase connecting two underlying chapels.
Churches and Museums
Museums, churches and galleries in Bruges are not in short supply, so it’s easy for the culture vulture to fill a day.
