By 21st November 2019November 26th, 2019Coach Travel, Day Trips

Bruges is one of the most magical European cities you can visit with lots to do whatever the time of year you travel there. However, if you haven’t been to this wonderful city during the wintertime, it’s something to consider, especially if you’re on the lookout for your next coach trip.

Here are some of the best reasons to go to Bruges in the winter.

Magical Winter Coach Trips

Some of the reasons Bruges is so popular is the mesmerising gothic architecture, winding canals and charming cobbled streets to get lost in. It’s as beautiful by night as it is in the day, often making travellers feel like they’re in the middle of a fairy tale. There’s plenty of heritage to see, cycling routes and shopping streets to explore. This time of year is one of the best times to get cosy in front of a fire there. Pop into a café or inn for some Belgian hot chocolate, delicious waffles or try some of the city’s finest beer to keep you warm on your adventures.

Xmas Markets

Christmas markets in Europe are one of the best things to do by coach during the winter, and Bruges’ offering is one of the most famous. From the end of November to the beginning of January, you’ll find traditional stalls, an ice rink and beautiful lights to get you in the festive mood. You could even use the trip to try the Belfry of Bruges on Market Square or get a horse-drawn carriage ride around the city while snuggled under a blanket. Bruges is the ideal place to visit if you want to feel like you’ve stepped into a scene straight from a Christmas card.

What’s On?

There’s lots to do in Bruges, whether you’re going as a couple, family, group or travelling solo by coach. Do your research first to find some of the best winter activities in Bruges as it can vary from year to year. There’s always a variety of events on, whether you’re looking for an interesting art exhibition, winter walking tour or market shopping.

Easy Coach Travel

One of the easiest ways to get to Bruges is by coach, especially if you’re visiting for the day. You’ll have a set place and time to be picked up from, travel via the Eurotunnel and be dropped off in good time to explore some of the city’s highlights. It’s a straightforward, convenient way to travel, especially in the winter when heading out on public transport is the last thing many feel like doing. Speak to a professional private coach hire company who can help you to plan your trip, whether you’re going as a group, organising a staff trip or you’re interested in their scheduled day trips.
