Bruges Waterways - Review

There's something especially charming about a town criss-crossed with canals. It harks back to an era where one had to make compromises with nature while building structures and eventually the town would come to use their disadvantage to their benefit, in this case it was a sea flooding their town in medieval times. Canals are just as useful as roads, even more if a lot of goods are being ferried about, which the case was during Bruges' Golden Era when it was a busy port and a centre of commerce in Northern Europe.

The Gothic medieval architecture may not be as bright or inviting, but along with the waterways they have a sort of appeal which earned them the moniker "Venice of the North”. You could walk along the canals; the more popular and far more enjoyable option is to go for a boat ride around the waterways.

Bruges Waterways Information

  • Take the boat ride around the Bruges waterways. Make it a guided boat tour where the entire town and its history is laid out to you. As you travel you will also see the relation between growth of the town and the waterways.
  • The canals run all around the town, so expect to see them everywhere. You plan a boat ride as part of your historic centre excursion.
  • The boat is a great way to see the entire town. Not only do you get a feel of the area but you can also scope out future activities, say an interesting building to visit later or a historical site you would like to spend a lot of time at.
  • If you go on the boat you'll be whipped around in cool air so bring a jacket or a sweater.
  • Pay heed to the person handling the boat, there are a few low bridges that could hurt you.
  • Obviously not recommended for those who feel uncomfortable around water, but if you step out of your comfort zone you'll get to experience one of the best things at Bruges.
  • The Venice of the North, canals criss-cross this Gothic medieval town.

  • This is an excellent little tour of some of the canals through Brugge. We were lucky enough to board with a lot of English speakers so the information relayed by the boat driver was done in English. He was informative as well as hilarious. It’s a beautiful ride, despite the boat being crammed as full as possible. I very niches enjoyed the tour and it is a great price.

  • Great little boat ride up and down the river through Brugge with multilingual commentary from the captain. They like to cram the boats full, but at only €8 per adult and €4 for a child, totally worth it. Compare that to the €50 horsedrawn carriage rides and this is a bargain! Get in line as soon as possible, as it can get busy on sunny days.

  • The ride was beautiful, but when we got on the boat the driver asked if we spoke French or English. We said English. The entire tour was then given in French and Flemish. After we ended the tour and asked if it was ever given in English we were told it is usually in English and told sorry ours was not. We did not receive any refund. Make sure if you speak English to get on a boat with a majority of English speakers.

  • You can have a wonderful boat ride here. It's 30 minutes ride for just 8 euros (in 2018-06) and you will never regret. A detailed description will be given by the skipper throughout the ride. We enjoyed a lot...

  • I wasn’t sure at first to take the boat ride, but I can tell you that it is a must when you’re in Brugues, although the boats can get a little bit crowded, the trip is not that long. You can see a lot of the beautiful buildings of the city and the tour guide give you interesting information about the places you see. They also speak several languages like German, Spanish and French. Highly recommend!
