We have been to Bruges/Brugge many times. It is an amazing place. We always drive and use the uderground car park, five minutes from the main square. The canal trips are a great way to see the city, the horse and cart rides are a great way to the city but we would never recommend you go just for the Christmas market, because it is pretty poor as far as markets go. However, seeing Bruges/Brugge at Christmas time with all the buildings lit up, is worth it. The best restaurants are not in the main… Read Full Review

We love to go to bruges xmas market. Although, as most reviews have said, the market is a bit rubbish compared with places like Cologne or Rhudesteim. But if it good value your'e looking for, try the P&O ferries mini cruise from Hull to Bruges. They usually have a 2 for 1 offer on which is £72 this year for two for 2 night onboard with cabin and a day in Bruges.it does make you get in the Xmas mood!… Read Full Review

Bruges is lovely - any other time of year. But the market is a waste of time! More so when it's raining and you get pushed and shoved with umbrellas and the rest… Read Full Review

If you want to go to a good Christmas market then don't go to Bruge. Bruge is a lovely city but the market is not a good one. We did a day trip and quickly found other things to do… Read Full Review

Very disappointing. A total waste of money. Lots of lovely lace if you like it. Everything over priced. Chocolate much more expensive than if you buy the same thing in England.
Don't go on a day trip from England. You spend most of your time travelling and will not have enough time to look at the cathedral, the museum and other places of interest… Read Full Review

We went last Christmas first weekend in December, it was lovely a lovely festive atmosphere, where you can shop at leisure without the frantic attitude of the UK, we stayed in the Crowne Plaza last minute delay and were right next to the main square. In the Belfry court yard there was a marque and with dancing, tapas food being served along with griddled sprats and a local liqueur (don't try and be clever and drink to much of this as it knocked my boyfriend out for the following day), the… Read Full Review

We were dropped close to at Begijnenvest, which is about 10-15 minutes walk from the Bruges Christmas Market Square.
The shops en route were fantastic, filled with local crafts, fine beer shops and - of course - a wide selection of Belgian chocolate.
The market itself however was a disappoinment, with around 15 stalls, most of them selling local food, and others selling counterfeit perfume and clothes.
The scenery and restaurants around the market square are superb, and the shops equally so… Read Full Review
