The free shuttle bus in Bruges is very helpful. It runs every 20 minutes.
The central junction of the shuttles is Jan van Eyck Square. Here, one shuttle bus drives the long northern loop, the other one goes south. Many sights of the city are along the way.
The southern loop proves for us to be particularly helpful since it represents a direct connection between the station and the center of the city.
As we wait for the bus at Jan van Eyck Square, a dog club passes by. The members walk their dogs together through the city. Except for a few exceptions, the dogs are only dachshunds.
The bus goes through the Wijnzakstraat, the Kraanplein, and through the Jakob von Ooststraat past the Municipal Theater, Royal City Theater, to the egg market.
Through the Geldmunstraat and Noordzandstraat, we reach the Concert Hall, Concertgebouw. From here we go directly to the train station.
On the way back, the route takes us along the barge path to Katelijnepoort, where a cargo ship is passing the swinging bridge.
The Katelijne stop is diagonally opposite the Academie Brugge DKO, an academy of fine arts and audiovisual arts. It is the ideal stop to visit the Godshuizen.
Via Mariastraat the bus reaches Simon Stevin Square. Next stop is at the Hof van Watervliet in the narrow street Oude Burg.
From there we continue via the Wollestraat to the market place, Grote Markt.
Through the Vlamingstraat and the Academiestraat, we get back to Jan van Eyck Platz.
We didn’t take the northern loop due to lack of time.
