The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Graslei and Korenlei and Tyne Cot Cemetery. Do some cultural sightseeing at Historic Centre of Brugge and Church of Our Lady Bruges. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Basilica of the Holy Blood, explore the activities along Minnewater Lake, hike along Bruges Art Route, and don't miss a visit to The Markt.
