The medieval town of Bruges centers around a canal, and the architecture of its historical district has made it a World Heritage Site.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like The Markt and Minnewater Lake. Get out of town with these interesting Bruges side-trips: Ghent (Gravensteen & Saint Bavo's Cathedral). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Historic Centre of Brugge, examine the collection at Choco-Story - The Chocolate Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica of the Holy Blood, and admire the landmark architecture of Stadhuis.
