Bruges is an amazing city to visit not only during the summer, but also in autumn. Bruges is also known as the “Venice of the North” because there are a lot of small and picturesque canals. Once directly connected with the sea, the gradual silting occuring since around 1050 has caused the city to lose its direct access to the sea. The typical Flanders houses and old canals make Bruges very fascinating. Bruges is also a UNESCO Heritage Site. Last weekend I went to Bruges to enjoy the autumn in this city. Sadly, during the covid-19 pandemic this city is a bit too quiet as there are only a few tourists, but it is very nice to take pictures.
Some restaurants, souvenir shops or boat rentals are closed, and during the evening some lights are unfortunately off because not many tourists are visiting at the moment.
Here are some pictures that I took during my last visit. Enjoy!
