Overview

This 2 hour free tour of Bruges is the perfect way to start your visit. In small groups our guides cover the fascinating history through stories while showing you the beautiful medieval city centre. Our passionate storytellers are local experts who will show you everything from the famous Belfry Tower on the Market Square, the iconic canals and the Bridge of Love to one of the oldest hospitals in the world.

Our Free Tour of Bruges is the highest rated on TripAdvisor and Google and ranked as one of the top things to do in Bruges. So you can stop doubting which tour to pick. One of our local guides will make it worth your while.

The tour starts at the Market Square and usually finishes right around the corner from where we start. We cover about 2 kilometers and designed our tour in such a way that everyone can join, it's even wheelchair accesible, so strollers are definitely not a problem.

All the guides have their personal focus and too many stories to fit in one tour so every tour is different. There is no set route, so besides the tour highlights there could be (many) more places you visit.

FAQ

How much distance is covered?

Around 2km (1.25mi). So it's not a long walk, but a lot of the interesting sites are very close to one another. Yet, we're able to talk about it for hours.

What does it mean? A free tour?*

It means that it's a Pay What You Want tour. At the end of the tour, you decide what the tour is worth to you and whether you want to reward the guide accordingly (and according to your budget). That way everyone can enjoy a tour.

Definitely going to judge all future tours against this one. Pascal was so great and you could feel his love for the city in the tour. We had so much fun with this tour and definitely walked away feeling like we’d gotten the best of Brugge.
