Bruges by night

Have you ever taken a walk through Bruges by night? If not - you definetely should!
There is nothing better to do than strolling along the canal and discover the charming corners of Bruges by night!
Let's have a closer look on which places you shouldn't miss:

Rozenhoedkaai
Definitely not to miss upon a visit to Bruges. 
The Rozenhoedkaai is one of the best places to take an awesome picture of Bruges by night. Especially later in the evening most of the tourists are gone and you have the perfect chance to enjoy a beautiful view in a lovely atmosphere.

Grote Markt
When being in Bruges it is no option to skip the market square.
However make sure to go there by night. The houses around the square will be very well lit as well as the Belfry will be. If you are lucky you will have the chance to listen to one of the street musicians, who are often playing in front of the Belfry.

Groenerei
Along the canal of Bruges you will find some nice and cozy places with old bridges and historical buildings which are worth a photo. You won't find a lot of tourists there later in the evening, so you can take your time and enjoy the beauty of Bruges on a leisurely bike ride or walk. Probably one of the most beautiful places you can find along the canal is Groenerei. Frome there you will have a nice view and you can enjoy a unique scenery.

Spiegelrei/ Spinolarei
Only a few meters from Groenerei you will get to a place called Spiegelrei/Spinolerei. It is a very picturesque watercourse in the city center. From the King's bridge over the Spiegelrei you will have a wonderful view of the tower of the 'Poortersloge' (Burgher's Lodge).

Gouden Handrei
Another beautiful waterhouse and street you can find in Bruges is Gouden Handrei. It is very nice to see how quiet and idyllic the water is and how all the houses are reflected along the canal.

Potterierei
If you will follow the canal further north you will get to a street called Potterierei. From the bridge you can enjoy a nice view over the canal. If you're still up for a walk or a ride you can follow the canal and after a few minutes you will be at the windmills of Bruges. Definitely a must see as well!
