The canals of Bruges

The Reien or canals of Bruges are the remains of the river Reie that used to run through the city. In these days the canals were used to provide the city with its needs and were very busy. They were a kind of transport highways.


Today the meandering waterways are only used to give tourists an unique view of the city by boat, a must do when you visit Bruges. You will discover secret gardens, picturesque bridges and wonderfully beautiful views. Especially the "Dijver" and the "Rozenhoedkaai" can take you breath away at some point. The Reien are also the raison that Bruges got the name of being "The Venice of the north". 


Summer or winter, morning or evening, sun or rain…the "Rozenhoedkaai" has the enthralling ability to always make a stunning impression.It should come as no surprise that this continuous to be one the most photographed spots in Bruges.

There are boat trips daily and a guide in your language can be provided.
