Bruges by night

Bruges is magical by day, but even more so when it is dark. Once the sun has set, Bruges goes to sleep and the streets are very quiet. This makes it ideal for a leisurely stroll through the city and to see the most beautiful places. However, there are also plenty of possibilities for those who prefer to do something in the evening. You can go to the theatre, to music performances, have a nice dinner, drink a glass of wine...
