Photo of the Week: The Rozenhoedkaai, Bruges

Bruges is an exceptionally picturesque city. The canals and exquisite medieval architecture make it a joy not only to visit, but to photograph as well.

One of the most photographed locations in Bruges is the view from the Rozenhoedkaai. Here, the Groenerei and Dijver canals meet, creating a romantic, charming scene. It’s believed that the Rozenhoedkaai was a mooring place for ships back in the late Middle Ages and that salt traders would come here to unload and load their merchandise.

I took this photo as we were floating past the Rozenhoedkaai on a canal cruise, one of the best things to do in Bruges! | View from the Rozenhoedkaai, Bruges: Photo of the Week

  • Paul - Great shot — and I’m sure you have lots more. Bruges is one of the most photogenic places you can go. It’s also full of very cool places hidden away in its squares and back streets. My favourite (and one I wrote about) was the Chapel of the Holy Blood, where they claim to have a vial of Christ’s blood preserved. There’s also a bar where the ceiling is covered with roses, and a frites museum — how cool is that?July 6, 2014 – 12:30 pmReplyCancel
