Winter is a wonderful time to visit Bruges. Imagine a Flemish landscape painting of cobbled streets, chocolate box houses and canals, windmills and church towers, lit by a low winter sun or gleaming with a sprinkling of snow - that's exactly what you'll find in Bruges.

Bruges, the capital of West Flanders, has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2000, thanks to its amazingly well preserved medieval architecture. But it's not a city preserved in the past: the atmosphere is warm and friendly, the shops, cafes and restaurants buzzing.

These are just a few of the reasons why you really should put Bruges at the number one spot on your winter travel list.
