Frietmuseum#10 in Best Things To Do in Bruges
The Frietmuseum claims to be the world's first and only museum dedicated to Belgian potato fries. On the first floor, you can learn about Belgium's history with this beloved snack; on the ground floor, the museum traces the potato's roots from Peru; and in the basement you can sample some tasty potato fries.
One TripAdvisor user says: "This is a lot of fun, and very unusual. I never knew the potato was such an amazing and important part of history." But most visitors say the highlight of the visit is munching on the awesome fries in the museum's basement.
Adult admission is €6 EUR or about $8 USD, while kids from ages six to 12 are charged €4 or about $5.50 USD. Located right in the city center on Vlamingstraat, the Frietmuseum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 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.
