New Year's Day in Bruges | Belgium

On 1 January I went to Flanders for a long weekend. The first stop was Bruges, a cosy town where I had been several times before. One of the main attractions are the canals and taking a boat tour is a must. But it wasn't the season and so walking around the romantic streets was all there was to do. Shops were closed but luckily some restaurants were open. I had lunch at Panier d'Or on the main square. On Tripadvisor it is ranked 503 out of 554 restaurants in Bruges. Need I say more? The setting and the service were so bad, while the food as alright. In the evening I drove to Ghent where I was staying for two nights. More pics to follow.

    Oh that is too bad, disappointing when a restaurant does not work out. But the city itself is so charming.

  29. Such a beautiful place, gorgeous pictures. I've actually lived in Belgium for 7 years but have never been to Bruges, which I can see is a mistake :)

  30. Thanks Suze. Yes, I also find Ghent better. Sadly it's underrated when compared to Bruges!

    Oh I so love Bruges! It is one of my most favorite cities! I have to say - I had some great food experiences there (like at Park restaurant), but as well I had several bad, so I am not surprised to hear you didn't like the place! But pictures are amazing!
