Water Body · Nature / Park
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.
