The Groeninge Museum, Bruge's museum of fine arts, hosts a number of works by the famous 15th-century Flemish painters Jan van Eyck and Hans Memling. But that's not all: Works from the Flemish Primitives, as well as from the Modernists, also adorn the walls. Of special note is Hieronymus Bosch's "The Last Judgment" and Jan van Eyck's "Madonna with Canon van der Paele."

Some of the museum's rooms are closed to public viewing due to installation of future exhibits. And some visitors express disappointment at this, especially since there's no price concession.

The museum is usually open daily from about 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is €8 EUR or about $11 USD for adults. You'll find it just a five-minute walk south of Markt. For more information, visit the tourism board's 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.
