From Ghent: Bruges Guided City Highlights Tour

7. From Ghent: Bruges Guided City Highlights Tour

A walking tour enjoying its canals while we talk about why it has a certain rivalry with Ghent; about its town hall, which is one of the oldest in Europe; about the only relic that holds the blood of Christ, or about its famous beguinary. What is it? There are many fascinating stories in Bruges and this is one of them. Why is there a bear on the Bruges shield? Why is Rozenhoedkaai the most photographed place in Bruges? And if you like beer… You'll be amazed! And not only because of the number of different types, it's because you can step in it when you walk through the streets of the city! You will see the second-tallest brick tower in the world, the first Miguel Ángel's masterpiece to leave Italy and the Lake of Love, which was the first pier in the medieval city. So romantic! But there will also be more mysterious stories. Why swans are the protagonists of the “death” of Bruges? How is it possible you can eat in a restaurant where an emperor was imprisoned? Or…why there is a bridge built with tombstones from a pilgrims' hospital? You'll be surprised! By the way, don't forget to try the gastronomy because it has a lot of history. Special mention, of course, goes to chocolate, which is still produced traditionally. But, what about its famous frites? One of the city's most curious museums is the frites museum. Incredible! Bruges is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world. Maybe, for this reason, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
