This definitive little guide will lead you on an adventure through the heart of a city you thought you knew, introducing the best shops, hotels, bed and breakfasts, cafes and restaurants. It includes three atmospheric walks through the city, which showcase Bruges' range of diverse museums: from the Groeninge Museum, featuring fine art from the 15th to the 21st century, to the Hospital Museum - two medieval hospital buildings in the centre of Bruges, enjoying a new lease of life as art galleries. With a fold-out street map, this book confidently directs you to Bruges' finest sights, including monuments such as The Belfry, with its carillon that has rung every quarter hour for over 700 years; well-known locations, such as the historic city centre - a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and picturesque, hidden alleyways. It also includes tips from locals, letting you in on the secrets that only those native to Bruges would know, and features information on cultural events.
Containing new updated information, Bruges City Guide 2017 illustrates how this historic city, with its cherished architecture and artistic treasures - and its breweries and 50 or so chocolate boutiques - really does have something for everybody, whether you're planning a daytrip or a weekend getaway.
