Start planning your cruise and book your excursions to the surroundings of Zeebrugge
The village of Zeebrugge lies on the coast of Belgium and is the subdivision and modern port of Bruges. This MSC Northern Europe Cruises destination is known for its perfectly preserved medieval centre, winding streets, and charming canals lined with impressive buildings.
• Magnificent Bruges and its canals
• Belgian treats
• Brussels, Belgium's capital
The city of Bruges, capital of the province of West Flanders, is a remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site. On an MSC Cruises excursion, you’ll explore an infinite number of medieval landmarks featuring ancient dwellings and picturesque bridges. Discover charming Market Square with its iconic Guild houses and the Baroque-style Provost’s House, built in the 17th century. Stop by the Medieval Town Hall and the extraordinary Oude Griffe before enjoying some leisure time exploring the city.
Although Bruges is every bit the thriving modern European city, its historical beauty is such that any visitor would be excused for thinking that they were in a living medieval museum! See it for yourself on this MSC Cruises Excursion that will let you explore the city on your own, however you would like. Keep your camera within reach and head straight for the iconic medieval belfry, or try other traditionally Belgian treats such as waffles and chocolate, the world famous beers and French fries – actually a truly Belgian creation – or shop for the beautiful local lace and tapestries. Finally, head back to the coach after a wonderfully indulgent day to yourself, and maybe share a few of your experiences with fellow passengers as you ride back to Zeebrugge and your ship.
Brussels, the dazzling capital city of Belgium, makes for an unmissable MSC Cruises excursion. Here, you’ll admire wonderful parks, romantic squares, and a wealth of Gothic, Baroque, and Art Nouveau architecture. Countless landmarks await your discovery including the Atomium monument, the Chinese Pavillion, the King’s Castle in Laeken, and the vibrant 'Rue des Bouchers' with its cafes and restaurants. Don’t miss 'Manneken Pis', the statue of a small boy, which is Brussel’s official mascot.
