After two days in Bruges one of the highlights was a short bike ride to the city of Damme. It is only a 3.5 to 5 mile bike ride from Bruges city center. The ride is beautiful, most of it along a canal line with gorgeous trees, open farmland, and a few traditional windmills. When you arrive in Damme you'll find a great city center full of booksellers, quiet restaurants and pubs, and an interesting church to explore (Our Lady of Damme). We spent 3-4 hours on the trip out and back from Bruges and loved it.
