Bruges: gay-friendly destination for LGBTQ travel

If walking along cobbled streets among medieval buildings and canals sounds like a romantic getaway, we’d have to agree with you! That (and so much more) is what we experienced as a gay couple visiting Bruges in the Flanders region of Belgium. It was also of course a tasty place to visit with the infamous waffles and chocolates that are handmade in Bruges! It’s a beautiful old town that’s a popular tourist destination, and for good reason. We felt very comfortable walking around here (and even saw a couple other gay couples holding hands) and really felt like we had stepped back in time.

As seen in the video above we stayed at Hotel Martin’s Brugge, rode through the canals with Bruges by Boat, walked through the Concertgebouw Circuit, Museum Groeninge and St. John’s Hospital, and ate at Restaurant Nomad and De Republiek.

Thanks to Visit Flanders for helping to coordinate our trip and here are some of our photos from Bruges that I shared on my Instagram account:

We also did a Hotel Hangout video where we took a gay test so be sure to also check that out and of course if you’re new here then subscribe to my YouTube channel to see more videos from the destinations we visit – geared toward LGBTQ travelers like us!

This was an especially beautiful, historical, and romantic place for us to visit. As a gay couple from Canada those are three great things to have in a destination! And we found that most people spoke quite a bit of English so there was never really an issue with communicating. Very handy since neither of us speak a word of Flemish!
