Bruges by horse-drawn carriage
Driving Child-friendly Outdoor

Discover Bruges in a romantic and enjoyable way. Let one of the thirteen carriages take you along winding cobblestone roads, ancient bridges, the Bruges canals, majestic and cosy squares…, accompanied all the while by the relaxed rhythm of horses' hooves! The carriages depart from the Market Square (on Wednesday mornings from Burg Square) and for half an hour, they will take you past some of the highlights of Bruges, while the coachman gives you more information about the places that you see along the way. A regular stop is the Wijngaardplein near the Beguinage, where the horses are given a short rest and you can also stretch your legs. Your carriage ride will come to an end on the Market Square.

Carriage rides work just like a taxi. You wait at the Market Square until a carriage is available and then you can get on and pay the driver directly. What if I can't see any carriages? Don't worry, it means that they're all out on a ride. Normally, carriages are only available during the daytime, but in high season and/or when the weather is nice, carriages will also ride out in the evening.


  • in extreme heat (30°C or higher), no carriage rides will take place, in order to ensure the well-being of the horses. This will always be announced on the Facebook page of Visit Bruges
  • Standard rides departing from the Market Square cannot be booked, but circular rides departing from a fixed location (such as a hotel or restaurant, etc.) are possible on request by submitting direct request to the coachmen's association.
