One of the main routes into Brugge. Very picturesque but busy with tourists and tours walking in from the coach and station area. The lake feels more like part of the canal. Great photos across the lake on good weather days and early evenings with...More

Heavenly lake with clear water that reflects the trees, sky, and little bridges. Home to countless swans that swim, dive, and dance on the water make for a magical experience!

I'm going to bruges for a day and I'd like to know what's best to do in such short time? We'll be staying in a hotel very near to bruges station so how far are the walks and also how do we get to this lake? We will be doing the boat tour hopefully but we would also like to visit this lake. Thank you
