What to do in Bruges? What must I do/see?

I am coming to Bruges in June.

Without knowing more about you it is very difficult to answer that. Probably the best starting point would be to read the "Things to do" section on the left of the page. If you are still not sure after that come back and give a bit more information about yourself - age, interests, things you have enjoyed elsewhere - that might help shape the answers.

You MUST eat waffles and chips (but not in that order).

We spent 2 days in Bruges and this is what we did:

Pink Elephant bike tour

Canal boat ride

Climbed the belfry

Visited Choco Story museum and the Frites Museum

De Halve Maan brewery tour

Wandered aimlessly around town

Hung out in cafes drinking beer and watching people

Shopped a bit

A half day visit to Damme would be good.

It's a lovely little village close to Bruges.

There is a canal boat which goes between Bruges and Damme every couple of hours.

You can get a bus from the Markt to where the canal boat moors just outside the city canal ring.

Or maybe a visit to Ostend on the coast.

It's a 15 minute train ride from Bruges.
