Travelling to Bruges
During recent years, the amount of traffic allowed into the historic city of Bruges
has been considerably reduced to make it more attractive for sightseers. Therefore,
if you arrive by car, you will need to park in one of five designated car parks
in the inner city. From here, you can walk to most places or take local buses.
Cycling is another enjoyable way to discover the city.
A very convenient way to arrive in Bruges is by train. The station is centrally
located and there is a tourist office just near the main exit to the station,
where you can make hotel bookings or find out information about sights you would
like to see. Bruges is on the main London-Brussels-Cologne route into Central
Tour buses are limited by traffic restrictions and, after dropping off passengers,
have to park in a central coach park from where there is a regular shuttle service
to all major hotels. There are always guides at the coach park available to
take you on a city tour.
There are two international airports near Bruges, at Ostend and at Brussels.
However, most visitors are likely to arrive through Brussels, as it receives
flights from most European capitals as well as from the USA. Good train and
motorway links make the last part of the journey painless.
