Bruges is probably the most popular tourist destination in Belgium, so be prepared for large crowds in the summer. Bruges can be visited at all times of the year, however, if you are not too keen on the sharing the city with innumerable other visitors, it’s best to go before Easter, as it can get quite crowded between April and September, particularly during the height of summer, at weekends and during school holidays. Another very busy time is during the famous procession of the Holy Blood in early May - one of the oldest and most solemn religious events in the world, which attracts thousands of spectators.
Probably the best time to visit is during spring or autumn when it isn't too chilly and you don't have to fight for a table out on the square. If you are planning a short visit, then it’s best to avoid Mondays when most of the sights are closed.
