Low-traffic shopping streets 2016

To make your visit even more pleasant and relaxed, the city council has decided to ban all traffic from the following shopping streets on Saturdays and on shopping Sundays (every first Sunday of the month, except 1/1/2017) between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m.: Zuidzandstraat (except for De Lijn buses), Steenstraat, Geldmuntstraat, Noordzandstraat. Motorised traffic will not be allowed at those times. The city will remain easily reachable and accessible for everyone.

For our day visitors

We urge you to come to Bruges by train, if at all possible. If you do come by car, we would ask you to park in one of the city’s car parks: ‘Station’ or ‘’t Zand’ (located right by the traffic-free area). From the station, De Lijn provides a regular bus service to the city centre and back. The bus stops are within walking distance from the main shopping streets, historical buildings and museums. The bus is free for those who leave their car at the ‘Station’ car park.

For those staying in Bruges

Motorised traffic is not allowed in the shopping streets on he specified days and times. An exception will be made for those who are staying in accommodation with parking facilities, provided those visitors can legitimise their stay with a voucher which indicates a date of arrival, or departure, that overlaps with one of the traffic-free days.
