When you visit Bruges, find a hotel/hostel affiliated with BrugesCard!

They will give you this card for free on arrival, and you can get some discounts at most of the attractions in Bruges town.

Just showing the card at the ticket office, you could get some discounts for the entrance fee.

The places I could get discounts were;

- Groeninge Museum (2Euros discount)

- Bell Tower (2Euros discount)

- De Harve Maan brewery (1Euros discount)

- Boats on the canal (1Euros discount)

I only had 1 day and just walked around the town, so I didn't rent a bicycle but you may get the discount at rental cycle shops as well.

If you are staying at the hostels or hotels that has affiliate with this card, I highly recommend you to take one to get the discount for free!

It's been a few years since I visited Brugges (back in 2004 and pre-digital camera), but it's a great little town! Just walking around the town is really pretty. It's almost as though there are two town squares in the middle of the city. I think it was the city hall that we took an audio tour of -- it should be just to the left of the old church that supposedly contains a vial of Jesus' blood (which goes on parade in May).

Definitely take the brewery tour in Brugges. You get to go to the rooftop and have an amazing view of the city. And of course the obligatory pint at the end, which always makes it worthwhile.

The town is basically supported by tourism, so shop! There are tons of amazing chocolate shops (not surprising -- this *is* Belgium) and plenty of other types of stores -- lace and beer are the other two I remember. Not only is Belgium famous for beer, it's also a great place to pick up a bottle of gin. There are two main types of gin sold in Belgium, but then there is fruit-flavored gin similar to the way that you can buy fruit-flavored vodka. I recommend the passion fruit gin -- it's amazing!

I'm sorry I can't remember more, but Brugges is just a really cute town that is great to walk around and see, even just in a day. Enjoy!
