Groupon’s Guide To Bruges
With numerous market squares, medieval brick buildings and canals, Bruges takes travellers for a leap through time back to the Middle Ages of north-west Belgium.
The historic centre of Bruges has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as Gothic landmarks such as the Town Hall and The Church of Our Lady illustrate significant stages in the commercial and cultural fields in medieval Europe. The artistic heritage is present throughout Groeninge Museum, housing six centuries of Flemish and Belgian paintings, while the Bruges Art Route may be the star of a cycling tour through the city’s growing collection of paintings, sculptures and works-in-progress. Visitors with a sweet tooth will find chocolate-filled display windows all over town, and the Choco-Story provides an insight into the history and making of this cocoa treat.
Weather in the medieval city of Bruges consists of a moderate climate, with hot summers and colder winters. The best season to visit Bruges is summer, with an average temperature range between 13-21°C. August is considered the hottest month, but the temperature hardly climbs to 22°C.
