The Best Bits of Brugge, Belgium

It’s a beautiful day for a walk through Brugge!   We’re starting out from the Huis Sint-Andriescruyse , a traditional gabled B&B in the old town of Brugge.  Situated right along the canal the house is in the long, narrow, dutch design, with the steep, curvy, staircase to the upper rooms overlooking the garden. Our hosts, Luc and Christiane, made us most welcome to their home and I loved being able to lodge inside one of these distinctive homes.  Out the door, just walking along the canal, I was quite content! History abounds in the WWI Flanders Fields nearby and the monuments are easily reachable by car or bus tours from Brugge. I have written extensive posts on these cemeteries and tours so check those out too. But, today we are out for a lovely walk through town. I enjoyed the canals, architecture, gardens, pubs and restaurants! First, we will stroll along the canal. As usual be sure to look up! You don’t want to miss anything! Enjoy!

Crow-stepped gabled houses are staircase designed projections above roof lines used as decoration and an easy way to finish off the brick of the house. This extensive architecture was quite common in medieval Belgium. Most of the homes in the Old Town are of this design. I like the artwork at the tippy tops!

        Getting me excited about upcoming travel. Soon I’ll be taking a Viking river cruise on the Rhine from Basel to Amsterdam, and visiting Amsterdam, Munich, Salzburg, Berlin, etc. I hope to take lots of photos too. I need to make sure my iPhone has enough storage and battery so I don’t miss out.

    Hi, CadyLuck! It’s been quite a while since I’ve last visited your blog 😦 Actually, I don’t remember seeing it in my reader lately, but I went to your blog and see that you have, indeed, been posting. So my bad. Anyway, I loved your posy on Brugge! I was fortunate to visit there as part of a high school choral group ( I won’t tell you how long ago THAT was!), but I still remember the charm of the city and have always wanted to return. So thanks for stirring up some wonderful memories!
