I love this view of Brugges taken from my climb up the Belfry. The entire city is like a fairytale city. Yes there are a lot of tourists, but go for the lace, chocolates, beer. I've never seen such a pretty city before. It's an easy train ride from Belgium or Paris and I recommend staying for a night—you can really soak in the place after the day trippers have left.
Tip: Make sure to have the french fries served in the cart in front of the Belfy with the curry sauce and mayo. It's delish!
