LAYOVER: Day trip to Brugge (Belgium)

Here’s a short video I made of our trip to Brugge yesterday. It was a gorgeous little city and I recommend anyone laying over in Brussels to go. It’s just a one hour train ride from Brussels Central Station. – Kevin Cox

  1. Leuven, a small University town to the south can also be a nice Brussels layover if you have already done Brugge.

      I stayed in Leuven during my stay in Brussels last summer, 09. Yes, it is also a nice town to stay in. I loved how peaceful it was. And the Herge museum is there! I didn’t know that when I went there but as a Tin-Tin fan when I was a child, I was ecstatic to find that out once I got there!

  2. I wouldn’t mind getting stuck there. Great video.

    Was last there in 1998. I see that it hasn’t changed (thankfully).

    I went to Brugge last summer in 09. I loved the place! It’s such a lovely little town, with windmills! And they say it’s the Little Venice BUT much cleaner! Which is totally true.

    Hi Heather,

    I love reading your blog and when you posted on Brugge I thought I’d take it as a sign that I should tell you how much I enjoy reading about your flight attendant adventures.

    Did you by chance try the marzipan in Brugge? I hated it all my life and after trying it there I’ve become a believer. Ah, the magic of Brugge. Also, while it might seem like a tourist trap, I recommend the tour of the Brugge Zot beer brewery. Best beer ever!

  6. Great video. Really enjoyed the music and the short little bursts of the trip.

    Felt a lot like what a 24 hour European layover is really like. Fitting in as much as you can in a few short hours.

    I’m enjoying your tweets & blog – Thanks

  7. There’s so much to see and do in Bruges! You’ll have to go back. We loved our trip there so much that we’ve written this free guide with recommendations on what to see…

    well, as a flemmish inhabitant I can also recommend you Ghent… Similar to Brugge, a little bigger city full of history, cultural events and nice places to visit.. It’s great you tried one of the best of the many sorts of beer we have here ;)
    hope you’ll get another chance to visit here..
    Take care!
    greetings from Belgium..
