Bruges in Autumn

Updated on May 29, 2013

Among all of Belgium's many fine destinations to visit, Bruges tends to stand out among visitors. Known as "the Venice of the North" due to its many canals, Bruges is a well preserved example of late Medieval and Renaissance architecture. Among Belgians, it's also known as one of the single most crowded places you could ever chose to go to in the country, particularly during the warmer months.

While I tend to avoid the place like the plague during the summer due to the hoards of rampaging tourists, the "off season" can offer the patient visitor some wonderful sights without the crowds. I am very fond of autumn while the trees remain colorful and - in the morning - the rapidly changing temperatures result in fine mists. Add a little sun (if you are lucky) and it can quickly become a landscape and architectural photographer's paradise...and without having to worry about too many people wandering into your shots. ;-)

      Thanks! Indeed, Bruges is also known for its lace (although most of what you will be there today are overpriced wares for tourists which you could find elsewhere in the country).

      What great pix. Really nice. My family lived in Belgium when I was younger. If memory serves, Bruges was also known for it's lace, was it not? These pictures really take me back. Thanks for such a lovely hub.
