Spend a Weekend in Bruges, Belgium

by UNIGLOBE Donaldson Travel - Bruges, Belgium -

This charming fairy tale city in West Flanders has so much to offer. Travelers can enjoy everything from the historical architecture and Flemish museums, to the local markets and green parks, to the innovative food and excellent nightlife. There's much to see and do, and if you're traveling through Europe, taking out 36 hours to spend in Bruges might be the best part of your trip. 

Ingrid K. Williams outlined her long weekend in Bruges for the NYTimes, 36 Hours: Bruges, Belgium. What an incredible trip! Here's an excerpt:

"With the absurdly high concentration of chocolate shops in town, it may seem as if every other storefront is peddling piles of pralines and trays of truffles. When succumbing to this temptation, seek out Bruges’s most innovative spots like Dominique Persoone’s shop, the Chocolate Line (Simon Stevinplein 19; 32-50-34-10-90; thechocolateline.be), packed with creative confections and fanciful flavor combinations like bitter ganache with vodka, passion fruit and lime. At the newcomer BbyB (Sint-Amandsstraat 39; 32-50-70-57-60; bbyb.be), however, the emphasis is on taste without tricks. Opened in October 2010, the sleek, all-white store is stocked with simple bars of fine Belgian chocolate wrapped in Pantone-style numbered boxes; try No. 15 with milk chocolate, hazelnut and babelutte (a regional caramel-like candy) or No. 50 with dark chocolate, tonka beans and lemon."
