Brugge is a delightfully preserved medieval town situated in the West Flanders region of Belgium. Its 13th century origins in the lace-manufacturing industry have been transformed into a beautiful and enticing tourist destination with excellent hotels and accommodation in general. Wandering amongst the stone buildings and winding canals is like stepping back in time, such is the success of the sympathetic transition from medieval to modern.
The central location of the Prinsenhof Hotel in Brugge enables you to immerse yourself in the charm and traditions of Brugge.
For much of the Middle Ages Brugge was one of the wealthiest cities in Europe, and it was during this time that many of its glorious buildings were constructed, so many of which survive to this day, including some that are in use as hotels. Indeed the importance of its architecture has earned Brugge and its historic center World Heritage status, which is only one reason why Brugge attracts around four million visitors.
One of the main attractions of Brugge is its Medieval Gothic architecture, which is even noticeable in some of the hotels. There is also Romanesque, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Neoclassical and Neo-Gothic, and even a little Art Nouveau and Art Deco, but it is the magnificence and quantity of the Gothic architecture of Brugge that is its forte.
The Prinsenhof Hotel in Brugge is situated close to the magnificent Grand Place and old town of Brugge, making it extremely convenient lodging for the major tourist sites of interest.
Despite the awe-inspiring architecture and beauty of its canals (which earned Brugge the title "the Venice of the North"), Brugge is also remarkable for the kindness of its inhabitants, over 25,000 of whom still live in the historic town center. The consistently warm welcome from residents, hotel staff and other tourism workers ensures that visitors experience both the beauty and friendliness of Brugge.
