Lake Minnewater is a romantic setting and a place to declare your undying love to your partner. There are also horse and carriage rides that go from the main square and stop at Lake Minnewater for the horse to take a short break.

It’s one of the best places in Bruges. Looks like watching a romantic movie. I came to it during a tour. It located next to hospital saint jean annex and next to béguinage.
