Venice of the North

The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
Change things up with these side-trips from Bruges: Ghent (Graslei and Korenlei & Gravensteen). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to The Markt, get engrossed in the history at Groeningemuseum, examine the collection at Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Our Lady Bruges.

Plan my Bruges trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Toronto, Canada to Bruges is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. Traveling from Toronto to Bruges, you'll lose 6 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect a bit cooler temperatures when traveling from Toronto in August; daily highs in Bruges reach 25°C and lows reach 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Brussels.

Belgium travel guide

Historic Sites · Specialty Museums · Nightlife
A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
