Zeebrugge/Brugge

De charmante middeleeuwse stad

Vandaag de dag is Brugge gevuld met bezoekers en omdat het een reputatie heeft als perfect bewaard gebleven middeleeuwse stad is het de populairste toeristische bestemming van België geworden. U moet dan ook zeker geen bezoek brengen aan Vlaanderen.
met een MSC Noord-Europa cruise en de stad overslaan: de musea van Brugge beschikken over de mooiste collecties van Vlaamse kunst die in België te vinden zijn. De gezellige, winderige straten die geweven zijn rond een netwerk van smalle grachten en bekleed zijn met prachtige oude gebouwen, maken zelfs de meest opgeblazen toeristische hype waar.

Wanneer u uitstapt van uw MSC cruise is het vanzelfsprekende beginpunt de twee voornaamste pleinen: de Markt, aan de voet van de Belfort, en de Burg, die omringd is door het meest indrukwekkende architectonische samenspel van de stad. Op zeer korte afstand vindt u de drie belangrijkste musea, waaronder het Groeningemuseum met prachtige uitdrukkingen van vroege Vlaamse kunst.

Nog iets verderop vindt u het St-Janshospitaal en de belangrijke schilderijen van de vijftiende-eeuwse kunstenaar Hans Memling, evenals de meest indrukwekkende kerken van Brugge: de Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk en St-Salvatorskathedraal. Verder weg ziet u de buitengewoon mooie, kleine grachten en de doolhofachtige geplaveide straten van Oost-Brugge, die zich uitstrekken vanaf het Jan van Eyckplein.

Het meest karakteristieke architectonische kenmerk is de trapgevel, populair tussen de veertiende en achttiende eeuw en nieuw leven ingeblazen door de restaurateurs van de jaren 1880. Er zijn ook enorme Georgiaanse herenhuizen te vinden en kleine, gezellige chalets.

Uw ogen worden keer op keer verrast door de sobere en subtiele verscheidenheid van het stadsbeeld: van intieme gebogen deuropeningen en schuine pannendaken tot scheve schoorstenen en tal van discrete heiligdommen en miniatuur standbeelden.

    Ghent is home to one of the world's greatest oil paintings, Van Eyck's ‘Adoration of the Mystic Lamb'. This dynamic modern city has a centre straight out of the Middle Ages; it was the weavers from Ghent, joined by others from Bruges, who took up arms to defeat the French in 1302. An hour coach drive will transfer you to Ghent where for a pleasant walking tour. Your exploration will begin at St. Michael's Bridge with its view of Ghent's three glorious medieval steeples, the closest one is that of the early Gothic St. Nicholas Church. Your guide will point out key monuments such as the Meat House and the City Hall. During your visit to St. Bavo's Cathedral you will see the ornate wooden pulpit and the world famous oil painting of ‘The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb' by the Van Eyck brothers. After the visit a little free time is scheduled to browse around the historic district or to look for souvenirs in the many lace and chocolate shops. Return to Zeebrugge. Please note: this tour includes periods of walking on cobblestones and uneven ground; it is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties or using a wheelchair. Limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be in English only.

    Thanks to its bucolic landscape and immaculately preserved medieval towns, travelling through Flanders is a little like stepping back in time. The first call on your time-warping tour is Damme, a quaint little town of numerous book shops that you can spend some time exploring - and photographing - at your own pace. A stretch by coach will then take you through the outskirts of the historical town of Bruges for glorious views of windmills and the impressive medieval city walls. A stop at one of the largest chocolate shops in Bruges - another speciality for which the Belgians are known - will give you a chance to indulge your sweet tooth with some premium-quality treats, following which you will head south to the mid-19th-century Loppem Castle. A more romantic spot you could not wish for: amid beautiful landscaped grounds with a lake, mature trees and a maze stands the remarkably well preserved castle in all its neo-Gothic splendour, complete with a richly decorated and exquisitely furnished interior. You will have some time to spend as you please before you begin your scenic journey back to the port and your ship. Please note: the tour is unsuitable for guests using a wheelchair. The number of guides in languages other than English is limited. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be in English only.

    Leave the port and enjoy a 30-minute drive to Bruges, an exquisitely preserved medieval town and a leading member of the Hanseatic League in the 13th century. Upon arrival in Bruges a guided walking tour through the historic district will introduce you to this beautiful, romantic city. Your guide will point out the major sites such as the Market Square with its Guild houses, the Belfry Tower and Burg Square. This square is the focal point of ancient Bruges, on the lift is the Provost House built in 1655 and across the square is a row of magnificent buildings. The Stadhuis, or Town Hall, dates back to the 14th century and has a wonderfully ornate façade covered with statues and the Oude Griffe, the former Recorder's House from the 1530's, is ornamented with impressive windows. Next you will enjoy a 30-minute guided canal boat cruise to see the beauty of medieval Bruges from a different perspective from the canals and the waterways of the city. Free time is scheduled around Walplein Square to search for the perfect souvenir in the many lace and chocolates shops. Return to the port. Please note: this tour includes periods of walking on cobblestones and uneven ground; it is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties or using a wheelchair.

    Perhaps best known for the entirely fictional Poirot, the moustachioed Belgian detective created by Agatha Christie, Belgium's real-life charms include exquisite lace and tapestries, delicious fries (a Belgian invention!), delectable chocolates, fluffy waffles, numerous types of beer and one of Europe's most beautiful medieval cities, Bruges. The fact that Bruges was once a major player in the confederation of merchant guilds called the Hanseatic League, which existed from the 13th to 17th century, is reflected in the beauty of its splendid buildings. After a 30-minute coach drive from the port, you will get to stroll through the appealing cobbled streets en route to your first stop: the Historium Museum. In a truly immersive manner, this amazing exhibition tells a multisensory love story, played out in a number of rooms that are all meticulously staged with special effects and music to evoke the year 1435. And to ensure you can follow the story to the very end, you will have use of an audio guide in your language. Next up is the museum's Grand Beer Café, where you'll both get to sample three speciality Belgian beers and enjoy stunning views of the town square. Time will then be yours to explore Bruges on your own, after which your guide will take you past the romantic Lake of Love en route to the coach for the drive back to Zeebrugge and your ship. Please note: as the tour involves longer periods of walking, it is unsuitable for guests with mobility problems or using a wheelchair. Guests must be 18 years old to participate in the beer tasting session: soft drinks only will be served to all guests under 18 years of age. Comfortable shoes recommended; only cameras without a flash allowed inside the Museum.

    Boasting a brewing tradition of almost 1,000 years and currently producing almost 450 distinct varieties, there can be no doubt that beer is writ large in Belgium's culture and customs. A tipple that began life merely as a safer alternative to the pestilent water of the day has evolved into a sophisticated drink whose traditional brewing methods are now enhanced by modern technology to yield a range of beers that knows no equal in taste, variety and character. The setting for your venture into the world of beer is the medieval town of Bruges and its meticulously preserved 12th- to 15th-century buildings, only a 30-minute coach journey from the port. A guided walk will take you through cobbled lanes and tree-lined canals to reach the bustling marketplace, belfry tower, town hall and the 12th-century Basilica of the Holy Blood. The beer-appreciation session that then follows will inform and delight your palate - aided by your knowledgeable guide -with the delicious flavours of 4 different beers. Cheers, everyone! Time will also be set aside for you to delve into the many delights of Bruges on your own. The variety of shops selling fine Belgian beer, chocolate and lace make this picturesque town a joy to explore and a great place to pick up a truly original memento. The short return drive to your ship then brings your mellow Belgian experience to a close. Please note: the tour is unsuitable for guests with mobility problems or using a wheelchair. The number of guides in languages other than English is limited. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be in English only. Guests must be 18 years old to participate in the beer-appreciation session.

    Combine a few hours out to marvel at the beauties of Bruges and to learn Belgium's finest export product: chocolate. A 30-minute coach drive will take you to Bruges (Brugge in Flemish), an exquisitely preserved medieval town and a leading member of the Hanseatic League in the 13th century. Upon arrival in Bruges a guided walking tour through the historic district will introduce you to this beautiful, romantic city.

Next stop will be at a Belgian chocolatier's workshop to see how raw chocolate bars re made into the fine Belgian chocolates using only the freshest and best ingredients. At the end of the demonstration you will have time to purchase some Belgian chocolates and to pay a brief, independent visit to the Chocolate Museum. After some free time to search for the perfect souvenir in the many lace and chocolates shops, your guide will lead you past the romantic Lake of Love and back to your coach.

    Except for the fact that Bruges very much exists and thrives in the modern world, the historical beauty of the Belgian city is such that any visitor would be excused for thinking - even if only for a moment - that they had fetched up in a living museum dedicated to showcasing life in medieval times. After boarding your coach at the pier, no more than a 30-minute drive separates you from your drop-off point in the city centre: Walplein Square. You will be informed about when and where to pick up your coach again, but after that, it's down to you alone how you spend your time in town. Keep your camera within easy reach since the gorgeous old buildings, a testament to Bruges' heyday as a prominent member of the 13th- to 17th-century merchant confederation known as the Hanseatic League, are likely to get your snapshot finger twitching. But this is also just the spot to try or shop for other traditionally Belgian treats such as waffles and chocolate, artisan beers and fries - a truly Belgian creation - as well as lace and tapestries. The coach ride back to Zeebrugge and your ship ultimately brings the outing to a close. Please note: as the tour involves longer periods of walking on cobblestones and uneven ground, it is unsuitable for guests with mobility problems or using a wheelchair.

      Enjoy a day out to discover the beauties of Brussels. An approximate 1.5 hours drive will take to Brussels where skyscrapers and hotels have modernized the skyline of this French and Flemish speaking city. Brussels is today an important banking and trade centre as well as the headquarters for NATO and the European Community. You will discover the city's important monuments during an orientation coach tour that will lead you past the exhibition halls of the Centenaire, the Atomium - a gigantic representation of an iron molecule built for the 1958 World's Fair - the Chinese Pavillion, Japanese Tower and the King's Castle in Laeken. In the city centre, you will view the Royal Palace before leaving the coach and begin a guided walking tour through St. Hubert Gallery to the ‘Rue des Bouchers', which is the centre of the gastronomical district of the city. Your guide will lead you to the ‘Grand Place', one of Europe's most beautiful squares. The extraordinary ensemble of baroque façades was built on the very spot where Brussels first inhabitants held their market in the 12th century, the heart of the community in the Middle Ages. Admire the remarkable building overlooking the square such as the 15th century Gothic City Hall and the Guild Houses. A short walk from the ‘Grand Place' stands the 17th century bronze statue by Jerome Duquesn, ‘Manneken Pis', of a small boy that is the city's official mascot. Enjoy free time to have lunch (not included) or to search for souvenirs in one of the many lace and chocolate shops. Return to the port.

    Als een federale staat met drie officiële talen en een aanhoudende rivaliteit tussen de twee belangrijkste groepen – Nederlandstalige Vlamingen en Franstalige Walen – is  de saaie reputatie van België absoluut misleidend.
    Een cruise naar België neemt u mee naar de levendige en ontwikkelde steden in het voornamelijk stedelijke noorden en mooie bossen en rotsachtige heuvels in het zuiden. Een vakantie naar België is een genot: tel de Belgische passie voor bier en heerlijke keuken mee en u hebt alle ingrediënten voor een echte onvergetelijke reis. Het naburige Luxemburg, het mooiste Europese land op een klif, draagt daar ook aan bij.

    Ruwweg in het midden van België ligt de hoofdstad Brussel, het hart van de Europese Unie en een levendige en multiculturele stad. Ten noorden van de hoofdstad ligt het vlakke landschap van Vlaanderen, waarvan de belangrijkste stad, Antwerpen, een bruisende oude haven is bomvol schone kunsten, vooruitstrevende mode en tweemaal zoveel bars dan in Amsterdam.

    Verder naar het westen, ook in het Vlaamse deel, vindt u de charmante steden Brugge en Gent: elk met een prachtige concentratie middeleeuwse architectuur. Ten zuiden van Brussel heeft de meest schilderachtige regio van België, de Ardennen in Wallonië, diepe, bosrijke valleien, hoge verhogingen en donkere grotten. De stad Namen is de vanzelfsprekende toegangspoort.
