Be sure to take boat and boat tours in Bruges to get tired of sightseeing and explore the medieval buildings through the canals.
Where do Bruges boat tours depart from?
Bruges is a beautiful and historic city in Belgium, best explored by canal. There are many different canal tour companies to choose from, so it can be difficult to decide which one to go with. When choosing a canal tour company, it is important to consider the size of the group, as some companies only cater to small groups.
It is also necessary to see what type of boats are used, as some can be quite cramped. Once you have found a company you are happy with, you can sit back and relax as you glide through the canals of Bruges, admiring the architecture and soaking up the atmosphere of this beautiful city.
In Bruges, you can see places where you can take a boat tour at various points. The most suitable one for our sightseeing tour is the starting point south of Burg square, at the intersection of Rozenhoedkaai, Braambergstraat and Pandreitje streets. On the Dijver River side of the walls you see the boats. Those are the tour boats. Since the boats are open, you can use an umbrella to avoid getting wet when it rains. You have no alternative to get on the covered boats.
