Really nice square. Not quite as nice as the nearby Burg Square, but still very picturesque with some fabulous buildings. A lot of traffic and cyclists here so be careful.

But of course as with many charming squares it was crowded with tourists. We went early March and it was already busy. Still, a beautiful place in a beautiful town worth visiting! Try to stay away from the most busy weekends and holidays.

You have to come to this area of Bruges if you want that picturesque view of Belgium. There are so many restaurants, shops, and activities surrounding this area and it is gorgeous in the day and night!

In my opinion this is the best spot in Brugge! Very busy, information centre located there! Be careful about thieves! A lot of spots for street food! Most of the main attractions near this place!

We thought it was a charming place for the holidays with family and friends. A lot of people were walking around despite the rain and cold temperature. Very vibrant and interesting.

Full of hustle and bustle! Lots of horses and carriages and cars, so be careful. Lots of shops and things to see. Market wasn’t on when we were there, but still something to behold.

Nice place with plenty of things to do around. Winter is also great for the Christmas market and ice rink.

When we visited in late November, Markt Square was filled with the annual Christmas Market. Numerous vendors offered their Christmas (and other) wares, and there was a great deal of delicious food and drink - we enjoyed Gluwein, bratwurst and waffles.
