Bruges by Night

More than 120 000 people call the city of Bruges home and another 3 million visit every year. During the day the atmosphere in the central area around the Markt and its surrounding streets is vibrant, and the shops and cafés hum with activity.

In the evening, after the day-trippers leave, the streets are practically empty. The medieval buildings light up and the carillon in the Belfry continues to play into the night.

It’s simply magical.

  1. It’s amazing to me how festive European cities can be at night, Carol. Whenever I’ve traveled in Europe, I feel perfectly comfortable wandering around at night, unlike I do here in the U.S. Lovely festive pictures. :-)
