If you're already in Bruges, you can walk from one installation to the other at your own pace. There is no set route to follow when visiting the installations.

Residents of the cycle-friendly city of Bruges and people living around the city centre can easily visit the Bruges Triennial by bike. By moving around by bike, you will be able to reach the installations spread across the city centre quickly and easily.  

Would you prefer to park your bike somewhere and continue your journey on foot? If so, you can make use of the free underground bike parking facilities.
