Unusual mix of darkness and beauty
Lost in time – that’s how you feel in the heart of Bruges, Europe’s best preserved medieval city. This is a dreamy city that could convert the most modern poet into a romantic: nothing upsets the peace and equilibrium of this medieval destination - no high rises, rare neon lights and hardly any blights of modern development. A waffle stall on every corner, romantic carriages on every street, and an airy main square with 47 chiming bells are just some of the city’s unique features.

Bakkersrei is one of the most interesting Brugge reien. There’s no street named after it, but its location is an excellent reference point for tourists. It runs from the vicinity of the Minnewaterpark and Beguinage Ten Wijngaerde, to the Gruuthuse Bridge, from where it connects with Dijver.
Bakkersrei is noteworthy for the many landmarks that can be observed along its course: the previously mentioned Beguinage Ten Wijngaerde, as well as the Old Saint John’s Hospital, the Church of Our Lady (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk) and the Gruuthusemuseum.
