Take a romantic carriage ride at the Market Square
The medieval market square in Bruges, also called the Markt or the Grote Markt, lies at the heart of the city. It’s always bustling with a mix of locals and tourists. The market stalls, where you can usually buy flowers, local goods as well as fruit and veg, are embellished with all things Christmas if you visit Bruges between November and January.
At the northern side of the square, you’ll be able to spot a row of Guild Houses. The richly decorated building on the square is the Provincial Palace. If the Christmas season has you feeling romantic, you can indulge in a carriage ride and see the sights of this charming city the old-fashioned way. The 30-minute ride takes you over old bridges and through cobblestone streets with the coachman pointing out the various highlights along the way.
You’ll stop near the Beguinage at Wijngaardplein to stretch your legs, and the horses are given a well-deserved rest, before the ride continues through Bruges and back to the Market Square to complete your ride.
