Create an itinerary including Minnewater Lake
Take in a view of the city from the bridge in Minnewater Lake. The lake and its park act as an entrance to the city and are home to many swans, a symbol of Bruges. The lake's name translates roughly to "lake of love," and its canals are cozy and romantic. The calm waters contain near-perfect reflections of the trees and buildings that surround the lake. Spend some quiet time in this picturesque park enjoying the beautiful scenery and the wild swans and other birds. PutMinnewater Lake into our Bruges route website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Picturesque and calming spot south of the main tourist area of Bruges. Relaxing place with nice views. Best visited in early morning when few others will be around to disturb the serenity.

  • Must visit if you are in Bruges for the serene and beautiful lake view with a legend. You can take beautiful shots in front of the lake. Legend has it that you can make your love eternal by kissing on the bridge or get your wish fulfilled by bringing a lock and putting it on the bridge.
  • Easily overlooked but a great place to visit.
  • Beautiful part of the city center in Bruges! There are many swans, there is water & there are horse & rides! There is also the lovely architecture of the buildings!
  • Bruges ready for X-Mas and New Year 2020
  • What a wonderful place No words can describe the beauty of this place
