We cycled through the square in late September. The sculptures and water features are all gone, just one plain flat surface. No doubt something is planned.

The square is situated at the end of the main shopping street. They often have markets here and there are some good cafes and restaurants around the square where you can catch your breath after shopping.

We were much less impressed with this area of Bruge. We loved the medieval part and the downtown. This was area was almost deserted and the buildings were strange architecture compared to the beauty of the old buildings. Glad we were staying near Market Square.

At the moment it is covered in machinery working on road works or something, so there is nothing much to see there, unless you are into diggers, until they finish.

this square is away from the big crowds but still easy to walk to. Relaxing evening as the sun set. Lots of choices for food and drinks.

This square is still being re-laid. The lovely statue which was new a few years ago is gone. Shops and restaurants around the square are open but on a windy day it can get very dusty. It was ripped up last year so not sure...More

This is by far the best place to park in Bruges. Central, easy to get in an out of, reasonably priced and underground.
