Business Insider published an overview of seven of the most romantic places in the world. It includes exotic destinations like Bali in Indonesia, Fez in Morocco and the Greek Isles in the Mediterranean.
Bruges in Belgium is listed second. Among other things, the article mentions the boatrides on the swan filled canals, the cobblestone streets** and the quaint houses as some of its romantic features.
Business Insider also mentions the horse drawn carriages as one of the top attractions, which is something we would like to see ended in Bruges. Enough of other medieval things to see and admire in Bruges!
As for gastronomical experiences, Business Insider points you to 3star Michelin restaurant De Karmeliet in the city center. Not your average restaurant, but I guess the readers of Business Insider must not be your average business(wo)men! Menu prices in De Karmeliet range from 85€ to 210€. You can get a vegan menu if you ask it well in advance. Maybe one day we will splash out and treat ourselves!
But let us assure you that there are plenty of other restaurants where vegans can dine out at more reasonable prices. Check out our lists of restaurants where vegans are welcome in the menu section of The Bruges vegan! List restaurants in Bruges and around Bruges.
** I can sure tell you those cobblestones don’t look so romantic anymore when you have sprained your ankel over them several times 😉
