Weather in Bruges

Bruges has a mild climate and is generally warm and temperate. There isn't really a bad time to visit Bruges; even a dark, brooding sky seems to accentuate the city’s gothic good looks.

Spring (March to May) sees temperatures gradually increase from 2°C (35.6°F) in March to 18°C (64.4°F) in May. Most tourists arrive in the summer months, so visit in spring for a less-crowded city to explore.

Summer (June to August) is the peak season for visiting Bruges. Visit in July if you’re looking to take part in musical festivals. However, if you have an aversion to jostling for space with other tourists, avoid the peak season.

Autumn (September to November) is typically rainy. The average temperatures in November are around 7°С (45°F) and 12°С (53°F). Believe it or not, but it has been said that September is one of the sunniest months of the year.


Winter (December to January) is made even colder by the cold winds that come from the coasts. But don’t be disheartened, the Christmas Market in Old Town and December Dance festival will lift your spirits and keep you warm inside.

Hotel Navarra

A grand hotel in a compact city, the Navarra is housed in a gorgeous, listed building in the heart of Bruges. There are 94 comfortable rooms in total, not to mention a fabulous swimming pool and sauna, which is the perfect tonic after a day of sightseeing. If you’ve brought your wheels to the city, the hotel’s on-site parking will ease the burden.

Hotel Fevery

Small, friendly and family-run, the Fevery is in a quiet spot just 10 minutes from the central market square. Rooms are simply furnished, but homely and good value. The fact there are only 10 of them keeps the service personal, ensuring the vibe stays like that of a suburban bed and breakfast, rather than a slick city hotel.

The Pand Hotel

Quite possibly the best place to stay in Bruges, The Pand is a small, luxurious hotel in the heart of the Old Town. Sumptuous but not showy, this former 18th-century carriage house has a friendly, laid-back ambiance and one of the best champagne breakfasts in the city. Festooned with the owner’s personal collection of antiques, there are 26 individually designed rooms to choose from.

Hotel Jacobs

Nestled down a sleepy side street on the edge of the Old Town, Hotel Jacobs is one of the best budget options in Bruges. This pretty, step-gabled building has 23 homely rooms, each with their own bathroom. Renovated a few years back, there’s free Wi-Fi, a bumper buffet breakfast and plenty of information about local attractions. The 10-minute walk into town is pleasant and easy-going.

Passage

Another wallet-friendly option, the Passage is a youth hostel, budget hotel, and restaurant split between two Old Town buildings. Scruffy and old fashioned but charming nonetheless, the Passage offers dorm beds, cheap doubles, and reasonably priced food. The staff are helpful and Bruges’ main attractions are just a short stroll away.

Hotel de Orangerie

Opulence abounds in the 20 large and lavish rooms of this lovely boutique hotel, housed in a former 15th-century monastery. Those facing the picturesque canal have some of the best views in town. If you can tear yourself away, the lounge bar has a warming open fire in winter, or you can enjoy afternoon tea in the elegant winter garden.
