Phototrip to Bruges, Belgium

Published May 5th, 2012

After seeing the movie 'In Bruges (2008)', a comedy with Colin Farrel I always wanted to visit the historically city Bruges in Belgium. The movie is about two criminals. Guilt-stricken after a job gone wrong, hitman Ray and his partner await orders from their ruthless boss in Bruges, Belgium, the last place in the world Ray wants to be. The city was beautifully portrayed in this movie, so on a nice sunny day in spring I drove to Bruges and went for a little sightseeing.

Scenery Bruges

With almost no cloud in the sky the city was packed with tourists. This scenery was at the Begijnhof, a nice spot where you can go to the cloister, or visit some restaurants.

Further east of the Begijnhof there is a park lane along the water. I couldn't resist capturing this beautiful tree at the waterside.
