This walk takes you to the areas of Bruges most tourists never get to see, but are just as beautiful. At the end of the walk we immerse you in the touristic Golden Triangle, because you do want to see the sights Bruges is world famous for and that gave it the status of World Heritage city.

- Trip Outline
Most tourists only visit what we locals call the Golden Triangle, which consists of only a small area of Bruges within the ramparts dating back to 1297, that is listed as Unesco World Heritage site and has kept its medieval feel due to the almost unchanged street pattern. Of course it will take more than a day to discover all corners of this fascinating city, but on this tour you will go beyond the tourist trampled streets, and also see areas we locals cherish. Bruges is not only the bustling busy tourist centre, it has a quiet side, that is just as charming, just as old, and just as authentic. Let me show you the green and tranquil part of Bruges, with its beautiful churches, its whitewashed stepped gabled houses, its canals and bridges, and help you imagine the life ages ago on these cobble stone streets. Let me then immerse you in the bustling side of Bruges where you will stand in awe of the architecture built over the ages to show off Bruges’ wealth and to impress its visitors. This walk offers you the best of ‘both Bruges’.
