  • Destination: Belgium
  • Duration: 1 day

Bruges, the largest city of West Flanders, was once part of a vital trade route which made it flourish and the chief commercial city in the 12th century. Today, many landmarks remain from this golden age and make for an interesting visit. The historic city centre, with its 13th century belfry is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Basilica of the Holy Blood offers Christians an opportunity to see a relic of the holy blood.

This day trip to this charming Belgium city is great for a day trip because it is closer than you think and provides students an opportunity to sample a different culture and learn about its history.
