Exploring Bruges on foot
Bruges may well be a grand UNESCO World Heritage city, but it is still a city on a human scale. Compact, cozy and with all the must-sees just a stone's throw from each other. So put your walking boots on, stroll along the water and through the alleys, discover hidden spots and above all ... enjoy all the splendour Bruges has to offer.
During a guided tour
It's wonderful to get lost wandering around the winding streets of Bruges, but it is also fascinating to explore the city with a Bruges expert. Opt for a classic tour featuring the highlights of our UNESCO World Heritage City, or be guided along less familiar spots, accompanied by spicy anecdotes.
With qualified guides
First time in Bruges, or have you already visited? No matter how much you know Bruges, exploring the city with a qualified guide will definitely teach you something new. Three guide associations are at your disposal, each with their own themes or stories. The guides from the Koninklijke Gidsenbond Brugge (Bruges Guides), Hello Bruges and S-wan Guides with a twist are the city's ambassadors. These proud guides are passionate about telling you all about "their" Bruges.
In collaboration with these 3 guide associations, Visit Bruges developed the 'Bruges from the heart’ walk, for which you can sign up individually. The guide will take you on an exclusive visit to the roof terrace of Concertgebouw Brugge (Concert Hall).
By the way, did you know that you can also book qualified guides for a guided visit to a museum or temporary exhibition? Feel free to ask any of the guide associations for information.
With tourism partners
How about exploring Bruges in a unique way? Visit Bruges' partner organisations are happy to give you a unique guided tour of the city. A passionate Bruges expert will let you discover the city from a thematic or unusual angle. While running, through the lens of your own camera or through Belgian beers. It's all possible.
On your own
Prefer to explore the city on foot, unaccompanied? That's also a great idea of course. Sometimes it's nice to just lose yourself in the city at your own pace, gently meandering through the many picturesque streets. Don't know where to start? Don't worry, we've developed several digital themed walks especially for you, that you can do perfectly on your own.
