“My Travel Bug brings me to Brussels to Bruges”

After Discovering Brussels my Next Stop is for Bruges so find out what is this place all about? Some common questions in your mind before heading towards Brussels to Bruges!

Are Brussels and Bruges the same place?

Big No! Brussels is the capital of Belgium and Bruges is the Venice of the North. Means Bruges is one of the cities with the canals.



Brussels to Bruges bus or train and How far it is?

Both options are available, but it’s not a good idea to travel by public bus. As Buses drive inside from city to city and sometimes stuck into the traffic badly which may affect travel time.

The best option is to select a train. Timetable of the train is very flexi and you can get a train every 30 minutes from the stations of Brussels. Travel time for this train 1:05 hour to 1:15 hours.

Reviews about Belgium Train System?

Always on time! You need to be a bit quick as they hardly stop for 10 minutes. So pack your bags and a quick jump into it! Very clean trains with toilet facilities with a lovely view to enjoy all your journey.

How to cover Brussels to Bruges in a day tour?

Yes, you can cover! there is a tour from Brussels to Ghent and Bruges. But to my recommendation, it’s so much for a day. At least stay over a night to feel the real essence of this place.

How is the Weather of Bruges?

Bruges weather is a bit colder than Brussels. Travel with layers or at least a light jacket with you even in summers. Evenings are cold and you can face unpredictable rain anytime. Go for a Raincoat as well!

Is Bruges toddler/Child-friendly place?

An environment of Bruges is very welcoming to toddlers and Children. It’s an old city and streets are not buggy friendly, unfortunately. The entire city is by walk or by boat which is why it is very tough to scroll a buggy/Pram with us. Else this place has a bunch of offers for children to have fun.
