Getting Around

Getting around Bruges on foot is easy, as the city centre is compact and has many pedestrian streets. Another good way to get around in Bruges is by bicycle, as visitors can hire bicycles from the train station. For those who do hire a bicycle, it's a good idea to become familiar with the traffic regulations in Bruges to avoid fines.

If the weather is less than perfect, Bruges has public buses that operate regular service during the day, and day passes can be purchased. Multi-day passes are available as well, but visitors should keep in mind that tickets cost marginally more when purchased from the bus driver than from a De Lijn sales office or machine.

Driving in Bruges is not recommended, as the narrow streets and numerous pedestrian thoroughfares add to the frustration of very limited parking options.
