Love brugge but its one of those catch22 places =

‘this place would be perfect if there were no tourists here! what? no, of course I don’t mean myself’.

I like Bruge, it’s a pretty little place and you just have to accept it’s mega touristy

It is, but it’s also one of those where if you go off the main 3 or 4 streets it can quickly become surprisingly quiet.

on my last visit my favourite bit was looking at those three windmills on the outskirts. It was pissing it down so I couldn’t persuade my wife and son to leave the nice warm hotel room. Absolutely desolate apart from one other man seemingly also looking at windmills in the rain on his own. We acknowledged each other then went about our days.

We spent Christmas in Brugge a few years back and stayed in a cottage about a kilometre outside the city walls. Was great - dead quiet, could walk into the countryside, but also only 20 minutes walk into the centre…

Looks nice in photos if you can time them so that there’s no one else in them, but it’s so orientated towards tourism that it just feels like a dead city.

Nah
