Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
Bruges, or Brugge in Dutch, is a medieval town packed full of picturesque cobblestoned lanes and traditional market squares, along with silent canals, and a wealth of historic churches, whitewashed almhouses and numerous towers.
The historic city is a major UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its considerable beauty and charm, not to mention its historical artefacts and art. While this compact city is home to around 117,000 people, only 20,000 people live in the centre itself.
Bruges is not served by a dedicated airport, which means that many visitors choose to arrive by train. If, however, you are arriving at one of the airports in Brussels, either the main airport or Charleroi, and you’re looking for comfortable and modern minibus hire to get you from the capital to Bruges, RentABus.com are here to help. If you're arriving from the port of Zeebrugge by cruiseboat or ferry, we also are able to organise a shore excursion of Bruges for you and your group.
We offer affordable minibus and coaches for hire in Bruges to ensure that you and your friends and family get to arrive in this beautiful city in style.
Furthermore, as there is a limited amount of accommodation in the city centre (less than 100 hotels) you may find it difficult to secure the accommodation you need at peak times.
However, if you’re staying outside the city centre, RentABus.com can make travel into the centre a breeze with some of the most affordable minibus hire in Bruges.
As the historical centre of Bruges is relatively small, it’s easy to walk between the city’s attractions, although the cobblestone paths can make it a little bumpy underfoot. What’s more, there’s always a serene canal close at hand, and everywhere you turn there’s a picture-perfect view.
If you’re a fan of visiting museums, you may want to consider buying a combined ticket for the Musea Brugge museums, especially if you plan to visit more than a couple.
One of the main museums, the Groeninge Museum, is home to a collection of fine arts ranging from the 14th century to modern day, and most of the exhibits have been painted by artists who lived and worked in the city.
But perhaps the sweetest museum is the Choco-Story Museum on Wijnzakstraat, which is run by Belcolade, a Belgian chocolate manufacturer. You’ll not only find out how chocolate is made, but you’ll get to try and buy samples too.
There’s also an excellent museum on Katelijnestraat displaying exhibits from the diamond trade, complete with live diamond polishing demonstrations. And if fries are your weakness, be sure to visit the Friet Museum that tells the story of how the humble potato was transformed into this world famous snack.
You’ll also find beautiful churches aplenty in Bruges. From the Basilica of the Holy Blood on Burg Square with its vial of blood which is said to come from Jesus, to Onze Lieve Vrouwkerk, with its Gothic and Romanesque architecture, and the Madonna with child sculpture by Michelangelo, there’s plenty to see and admire.
Venture to a quieter part of the city and you’ll find the Jerusalem church with its octagonal tower. Inside there’s an eerie chapel containing an effigy of the dead Christ.
And, of course, no visit to Bruges would be complete without a visit to a brewery. The Brewery De Halve Maan on Walplein offers tours to explain how the famous beer is made, plus you’ll get a fantastic bird’s eye view of the city from the brewery’s tower. You’ll also get to sample the delicious beer.
While negotiating the historic centre on foot is relatively easy, if you want to head further afield, or you simply want an easy way for a group of people to get around, RentABus.com can provide you with some of the best coach and minibus rentals in Bruges.
