Lovely spot to relax and take in the surroundings

Stopped for a while in Minnewater Park to soak up the sun and enjoy the views whilst doing a walking tour of Bruges. Very nice area, and lovely to sit and relax in.

The lake has some great views: the Castle Bar, the Beguinage, and the nearby Gate, as well as the wildlife and bridges nearby. It was a very nice break from the sensory overload of the city center.

Had a lovely walk around this area before going for a meal at One minnewater. Great spot, quiet and peaceful. Park area is lovely and I'd imagine quite spectacular when all the flowers and shrubs are out in spring. Worth a visit.

It's perhaps only when you enter the Minnewater Lake park that you realise how much greenery is missing in the centre of Bruges. The flowers, bushes, trees and lawns around the lake feel refreshing after the enormous amount of bricks and stone that it must have taken to build the historical centre of Bruges.

Such a pretty area of a beautiful old city. The horses stop for a rest by the beautiful lake. Shops and restaurants nestle in the historical setting. So worth visiting, by day and by night.

Every couple should at least once visit the Minnewater (= love lake) and the nearby begijnhof. Excellent for walking on a beautiful summer evening.
