Bruges

Venice of the North

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 find plenty of places to visit near Bruges: Ghent (Korenmarkt, Ghent City Center, &more). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Historic Centre of Brugge, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, contemplate the waterfront views at Minnewater Lake, and take in panoramic vistas at Belfry of Bruges.

Philadelphia, USA to Bruges is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Traveling from Philadelphia to Bruges, you'll lose 6 hours due to the time zone difference. In May, Bruges is little chillier than Philadelphia - with highs of 62°F and lows of 47°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Brugelette.

A small country packing a big punch in terms of tourist attractions, Belgium sits at the crossroads of Western Europe, its cities soaked in history and famed for their lively arts, fashion, and dining scenes. Although it advertises itself simply as "A Food Lover's Dream," this country of just 11 million people boasts a rich architectural heritage, world-famous breweries, pristine natural areas, and touching memorials marking major battlegrounds from both World War I and World War II. Put the country's elegant cities of Brussels and Bruges at the top of your itinerary, but don't forget that Belgium's less-explored countryside offers dense forests, rolling hills, and lush valleys.
