Bike through bustling Bruges
Take a ride around Belgium's most beguiling city on the Bruges City Bike Tour. Cycling over the cobblestones, your guide will regale you with tales of the grandeur and history of this harbor city, as well as introducing you to Bruges' best kept sightseeing spots. Stops on this city tour will include Brug Square, Market Square, The Church of Our Lady, the Beguinage, and Bruges' historic windmills.
Kick off this bicycle tour with a visit to Burg Square, home to some of the city's oldest buildings. Listen as your guide explains the Gothic architecture of the Town Hall, and reveals the mysteries of the Basilica of the Holy Blood, which houses a vial believed to contain drops of the blood of Christ. You'll also stop at the Market Square, located nearby, which is also surrounded by historic buildings and home to the famous Belfry tower, offering a panoramic prospect of this port city.
Cycling on, you may spot an imposing spire rising up in the distance. This will belong to The Church of Our Lady, a magnificent Gothic church located in the heart of Bruges. Its spire rises to over 400 feet, making this church one of the tallest buildings in the city. If you go inside, you’ll find a fine collection of religious art, including one of Michelangelo's most famous sculptures, Madonna and Child.
Take a moment of tranquility on this day tour as you stop off at the Beguinage. This peaceful, walled community located in the center of Bruges was founded in the 13th century. It began as a home to a community of unmarried religious women who devoted their lives to prayer, but did not take religious vows. Today, the Beguinage is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is home to an order of nuns. Wander around the buildings and church of the community's central square, which is blanketed with bright yellow daffodils every spring.
Bruges is famous for its historic windmills, which date back to the 18th century. Round off your sightseeing by riding along the city's ramparts, and following the canal to arrive at the four windmills that remain today. Your guide will explain how the 23 windmills that turned here in the 16th century contributed to Bruges thriving economy, before this family friendly guided tour heads back towards the city center.
