Choco-Story#11 in Best Things To Do in Bruges
This museum is all about chocolate: its history, its recipes and more. In fact, Choco-Story's mission statement is: "To make known the story of the transformation of cocoa into chocolate and to promote the health and quality aspects of Belgian chocolate."
Still, if you wouldn't call yourself a chocolate connoisseur, you might skip the museum and instead head to one of Bruges' celebrated chocolate shops. One TripAdvisor user says this: "Not a great museum, but if you love chocolate, I mean can't go without the stuff, then it's good for you."
You'll find Choco-Story near the city center on Sint-Jansplein. The chocolate museum is open every day, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is €7 EUR ($9.50 USD) for adults and €4 EUR ($5.50 USD) for kids between the ages of six and 11. For more information, visit the website.

#1 Minnewater Lake
Located just south of the De Halve Maan Brewery, Minnewater Lake (which literally means "Lake of Love") is a charming body of water bookended by canals. There are park benches, weeping willows, walking paths and even swans that give the lake a lovely ambience. Some say the canalized lake is best viewed in autumn, when the willow leaves change color.
Most people agree that the Minnewater Lake is a must-see for its romantic atmosphere and pleasant views. However, some visitors weren't impressed, like this TripAdvisor user who says, "It's a pleasant enough stretch of water with nice paths and seats but I wouldn't fight my way past all the other things in Bruges to go there." Visitors also mention that there are a few good restaurants skirting the lake, one of which sells tasty waffles.
