We ran by it but had to stop for a minute to enjoy the beautiful lake. If you go early you Will be alone, enjoy the peace & quite moments without tourists.

Loved the spot, very romantic with lush green lawns, pathways with great fall Colors, complementary brick buildings and lots of birds (swans, ducks). The place was full of life. It was 5-7 mins walk from the Brugge markt area.

This beautiful backwater in Brugge is a lovely setting. 'T Minnewater lovely restaurant, but we just sat outside for beers and wine on a lovely warm March day. Atmosphere was very relaxed, helpful staff, not pressure to eat or rush our drinks.

Calm area for a walk around the lake, and around some of the paths. Tea rooms are pretty close, and this just sits on the outside of the buildings, and away from the noise of the city and traffic..

Lovely walk along here. Beautiful scene for photos. The horse and carriages tend to be based here too so it’s a buzzing little hub as you cross over the river on the way into the centre.

Beautiful park to wander through on an autumn afternoon. Lots of bird life and gorgeous views. Toilets (50c) located in the coach park.
