Brugge City Break

Brugge City Break

The picturesque medieval city of Brugge is one of the best-preserved in the whole of Europe and is a perfect short break destination. With charming cobbled streets, crooked bridges, meandering canals and World Heritage-listed medieval buildings, this picture-perfect Belgian city is so pretty it's almost too good to be true.

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

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, television, radio, telephone, Wi-Fi, iron/ironing board, fridge, safe and tea/coffee making facilities. The Academie hotel also features a restaurant and bar, plus a lovely winter garden and terrace. Lift to all floors.

   

Please note that as with many hotels in Brugge, the Academie hotel is situated on a narrow street that is not accessible by large coach. Accessing the hotel will involve a short walk of 150 meters between the coach drop off area and the hotel entrance.

Early departure for our journey south to Folkestone and 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.

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’.
