Medieval Brugge

Medieval Brugge

Visit Brugge, undoubtedly one of the prettiest and most perfectly preserved medieval cities in Europe, with its Gothic-style town hall and the magnificent 13th century belfry

This beautifully preserved Flemish gem is undoubtedly one of the prettiest and most perfectly preserved medieval cities in Europe whose prosperity reached a peak in the 13th & 14th centuries, through the manufacture and trading of high-quality textiles. All this wealth left an impressive legacy of medieval town-houses and architectural masterpieces like the Gothic-style Town Hall and the magnificent 13th Century Belfry where the ascent to its summit is rewarded with magnificent panoramic views.

 

ACADEMIE HOTEL(4 STAR)

The four star Academie Hotel is situated right in the historic “golden triangle” of Brugge, just 50 metres from the famous Minnewater (Lake of Love) and with easy access on foot to the city centre. The stylish rooms all feature air-conditioning, telephone and satellite TV. Other facilities include a restaurant and bar, plus a lovely winter garden and terrace. Lift to all floors.

 

ITINERARY

Day One: Early departure for our journey south to Folkestone and a journey through the Eurotunnel to France. We then continue on to Belgium and the Academie Hotel in the delightful city of Brugge where we stay for the next three nights. Enjoy a welcome drink from your hosts on arrival.

 

Day Two: A day at leisure to discover the delights of this wonderful medieval city. Perhaps take a horse-drawn carriage ride to discover historic churches, picturesque cobbled streets and those irresistible lace and chocolate shops or maybe take a boat trip along the stunning winding canals and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the city that has been dubbed ‘The Venice of the North’.

 

Day Three: A further day at leisure in Brugge or join us for a drive through the Flanders countryside to visit the border town of Ypres, a town with strong associations with the First World War. Highlights include the Cloth Hall and the ‘In Flanders Fields Museum’, plus the famous Menin Gate, placed there in honour of those who perished and where each evening the Last Post is sounded by the fire brigade at 8.00pm and has done so since 1929.

 

Day Four: We leave Brugge and return to the Eurotunnel terminal at Calais for our journey back to Folkestone and home to North Wales.
