Outside Bruges

Do you have any extra time on your hands? Why then don’t you set out and discover Bruges’ wide surroundings? While Bruges’ wet- and woodlands treats you to medieval areas of natural beauty, glorious castles and endless bike routes that crisscross all those enchanting places, the coast offers countless splendid beaches and an authentic seafaring ambiance. And if you’re looking for something more intense, then head for the tranquil Westhoek, still dominated by the Great War. Each experience will guarantee some unforgettable memories!

Beach at Zeebrugge

In winter this is the place par excellence to get a breath of fresh air. In summer the townspeople of Bruges flock to this wide and safe sandy strip to sunbathe, swim and potter about. And why not take a train to the beach? It’s a piece of cake! Adjacent to the beach is the summer railway station. More →

Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-Bezoekingskerk Lissewege (Our Lady of the Visitation Church Lissewege)

This impressive brick church was erected in an early Gothic style in the 13th century. The remarkable interior counts amongst its treasures a miraculous statue of the Virgin Mary (1625), a striking organ-case and an equally stunning rood loft and pulpit (1652).

A truly great attraction is the monumental church tower. The top offers a magnificent panoramic view of the polders.
