Step back in time- 3 days visit to Bruges and Ghent

Only a few hours away from London, Bruges is the perfect destination for a mini break.

We took advantage of a Eurostar sale and decided to visit this fairy tale city.  We stayed 3 days, which gives you enough time to explore this beautiful city plus also fit in an afternoon trip to nearby city, Ghent.

Our hotel was literally a palace,  Hotel Duke's Palace former residence of the Burgundian aristoracy - perfectly located in the centre of Bruges. Five star hotel with a five star service.

Bruges is a UNESCO Wolrd Heritage Site since 2000 and when walking its cobbles streets you automatically feel like in a different era.

Bruges at night is magical.

Places not to miss when you visit Bruges: 

Minnewater- or Lake of Love and Begijnhof - a convent still functioning.

To end, a few photos from Ghent.
