One-day visit to Bruges

Bruges is a city with a huge amount to see. The Grote Markt, the Belfry, the beguinage, the Basilica of the Holy Blood, the Minnewater Park,... these are just a few of the many places of interest the city has to offer. So a visit to the Adornes Domain could be part of a well-filled programme for the day.
