If hiring bikes it's worth a visit on way round the outskirts of town. Picturesque but no better than most lakes, parks or woods in the UK

This is such a beautiful park and area in the old part of Bruges. It is quiet and you can sit back and watch so much happening around and enjoy the amazing buildings. It's just a short walk from the main area.

I loved it here. This was the first place we visited as we got off the train and it didn't disappoint. Get away from the crowded centre and enjoy, the leafy trees, canals and charming buildings.
