Patrick is a tour guide and home cook, with a passion for travel and beer. After working for years in the finance and ICT industry, he gave up the office life to show his city to the world. When he’s not walking around with tourists in Bruges or giving online cooking classes, you’ll find him in his garage making beer, or discovering new restaurants in town, or on an adventurous run in the woods.

Join us and travel back in time to the glorious days of Bruges. Get to know our Freedom Fighters and how we set ourselves free from the French Kingdom. Patrick will bring you to the place where Bruges has been started and together we will figure out what happened with the Madonna of Bruges, a beautiful marble sculpture by Michelangelo!
