Didn't realize this was a route, but ran through it on my morning run around the city. Working windmills turning in the breeze, lovely canal view, please stroll (or jog).

We enjoyed our walk to the windmills. Pleasant views are all around! On one side is the ancient architecture of Bruge and the other side is a pretty park with bicycle path.

Some of the windmills are open at certain times of the year, but despite not founding one open, the riverside walk to the windmills, is so lovely. And the panoramic views are amazing!

The windmills are well worth a visit. We walked in from the square so it took about 30 mins. You can't go up to all of the windmills, but we did find one that you could, but the steps are very steep, so be careful!...More

Brugge is not really the greatest city to be with your dogs, at least not the city centre for sure. The area - park around those beautiful mills is just great, go for nice, relaxing stroll. Really you can enjoy the nature, the boats in...More

Walking along the edges of Bruges is great, especially when the sun shines upon the green grass. You can stroll along the paths and gander at the windmills (only one of which is real, the others are replicas and don't work). Make sure to do...More

It is available in English. Does the web site not offer you an option to change the language? Did you find the web site from a search engine and did you inadvertently select one that was in Flemish; can you find one that is... More

The walk can be as long as you want it to be, it all depends how long you want to spend at the various venues along the way. We just allowed a morning to enjoy it and when in the centre you can deviate off and then... More
