2 Days in Bruges: The romantic Belgium

Bruges is the second city most visited in Belgium, after Brussels. Just 1h20 from Brussels and 40min from Ghent. 2 Days in Bruges are enough to spend a good time and don’t miss anything. Famous for its chocolate and its canals, all seasoned with a warm and very romantic atmosphere as you will not find great temperatures.

HOW TO GET THERE:

The best way to get to Bruges is by train, comfortable and easy, from Brussels Airport there is a train every hour and a half that will take you to your destination (€ 22 single ticket), an option is to take a train that will bring to Brussels city center, and then change to Bruges, the price is the same.

If you already are in Belgium: departing from Ghent (price is 6.50€ one way, 30min) or Amberes (price is 15.50€ one way, 1h10min). Or from Paris (price is 36€ one way, 3h).

TIPS TIME !! All train tickets can be purchased online (I use Goeuro), the controllers always leave you to pass, I recommend you to do it at any time, to pass the security turnstiles just show the phone to the controllers.

WHERE TO SLEEP:

Prices to stay in Bruges start from € 40/45 sharing a room in some hostel, in my case I was staying at the Hostel Lybeer, centrally located and easy to find, just 10min walk from the station. I recommend it especially in the case of traveling alone or with friends, for the community lounge and the activities that they organize, but I do not recommend it for a romantic journey, even if you are a young couple.

TIPS TIME! Are you a fan of Booking.com? So here 15€ discount for you. Just do the reservation through my invitation link.

2 DAYS IN BRUGES:

Getting around Belgium is very easy and low-cost. If you spend 2 days in Bruges is easier discover the city walking, you can see everything, although I found it right to spend at least one night in this beautiful city, it’s worth it.
