The city was established in July 1128 and new fortifications were quickly added for defence signalling the start of Bruges' “Golden Age”. The port enabled Bruges to establish itself as a key centre for trade all across Europe. One of the main drivers to this was the establishment of The Bourse in 1309, the first stock exchange in the world. By the 1400s, the city was attracting the cream of Europe's artists, bankers and other important people. The spinners and weavers operating out of Bruges were considered to be the best and most highly skilled in the world. Today it is a wonderful place to visit, filled with strong links to its important past right on your Bruges hotel doorstep.
The city centre of Bruges attracts many visitors with a multitude of museums and fine Belgian restaurants to be found amidst the winding streets, together with many excellent Bruges hotels. The new concert hall is an absolute must-see, the result of numerous architectural projects undertaken in the run-up to Bruges becoming a European City of Culture in 2002. The Saint Salvator Cathedral and the City Hall is among the most popular tourist attractions in Belgium. Did you know you can climb to the top of the belfry tower on the Grote Markt? It provides you with some amazing panoramic views over the city. After you get back to ground level, hop in one of the horse drawn carts and go for a ride around town. Bruges harbour is particularly worth a visit, being the most modern of its kind in Europe – there are several comfortable Bruges hotels nearby waiting to greet you warmly.
Aside from its cultural appeal, Bruges is an important business hub. The city hosted the Allergy and Astham Symposium in May 2009 and continues to attract companies such as Alcaltel-Lucent and the European Organisation for Technical Approvals, both of which are set to hold conferences in Bruges hotels and other locations this year. Given its state-of-the-art harbour and location on the North Sea, Bruges is also a key trading city with ties to many northern European countries. As a result, Bruges neatly combines the needs of both tourists and business people. The closest major airport is Brussels International. You can also use the airports in Lille and Charleroi. Travel by train is the best option. Belgium's train network is excellent, and Brussels to Bruges takes only about an hour. The best way to see the old town centre of Bruges is just to walk.
