There is no other place like Bruges in Belgium. With its authentic medieval architecture and picturesque canals, the so-called "reien", the city really is fairy tale material. Thanks to its water connection to the sea, the "Venice of the North" has been wealthy for centuries, having its golden age in the 15th century. Fortunately the inner city stayed intact ever since, making it a World Heritage Site of Unesco for everybody to enjoy. Go ahead and be a tourist in your own country, it feels wonderful. And there are even some hotspots to discover. Follow me!
