Getting to Bruges
The easiest and fastest mode of transportation from Brussels is an hour long train that costs about €26 (Rs.2080) for a return trip. Intercity links from other cities such as Ghent, Antwerp has also train facility with fastest options – 25 minutes and 2 hours respectively. The railway is very well connected from neighbouring cities such as Paris and Amsterdam.
Brugge is a fairly small city, making it very walkable. You may find the street layout a bit confusing initially, so keep the map handy and plan main destinations in advance. I would also suggest you to activate an internet plan to use the gmaps, as covering all the places can be easier and time saving. You can also explore the city by hiring a bicycle as its safe and cycle friendly. If you want to drop off your heavy luggage first you can use the bus transport, which goes to all parts of the city from the main train station for around €3 (Rs. 240).
Where to Stay
Being such a touristy city, stay can be pricy and not easily available so make sure you book in advance. I personally prefer staying near the city centre as everything is close by and would suggest you the same. A few hostel options for affordable stays are: Snuffel Hostel, St. Christopher’s Inn-Bauhaus Hostel and Inn Brugas B&B. Mid ranged hotels options include
Hotel Ibis Brugge Centrum and Martin’s Brugge. For travelers wanting to experience extravagant stays check out Hotel Dukes’ Palace 5, Hotel de Orangerie, Hotel Heritage Relais and Chateaux, Hotel Heritage, Hotel Navarra and Relais & Châteaux Hotel Heritage.
