The Programme

Day 1 (Tuesday): Visit to Bruges
On the first day, we will visit the fairytale city of Bruges. With its picturesque canals and medieval architecture, it's no wonder that Bruges is often referred to as the "Venice of the North". This historic city is well-preserved and has remarkable cultural heritage. You may recognize it from the movie "In Bruges", featuring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson.
We'll take you on a stroll through the city's well-preserved historic center, where you can admire the beautiful buildings and houses that date back centuries. You'll get to see Bruges hot spots in a guided tour, tour the canal by boat, meet and greet with the mayor of Bruges in the Townhall and visit Church of our Lady and the museum of the church. Join us for a tour of this beautiful city and discover why Bruges is synonymous with enjoyment in Belgium!
