The historical and charming town of Brugge was breathtaking

Take some snacks and enough water when bicycling to the cost.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Spending more time in Brugge would have been really nice! The city has much more to offer than what you can see on two days.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Only underestimating the time needed to get to the coast. But since we don't bicycle on a regular basis, this might not be a problem for you.

  • How was the food?

    We did have some one-night stops in some small villages not mentioned in the destinations. There is an absolutely amazing - accordingly more expensive than usually - restaurant near Maldegem called Artisan.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    The Dutch language is somehow pretty fun. Try learning a couple of words, even if it's just a few.

  • Packing tips?

    Depending on where you stay, bring some mosquito repellant - just in case. At one riding center we slept, they were annoying, and they were a lot.

  • Booking details?

    We mainly stayed at youth hostels in Brugge and Gent and riding stables for the in between stops. Worked pretty well.
