What do I need to know before moving to Bruges?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Bruges, they said...

"Bruges is a beautiful city in Belgium known for its canals, cobbled streets, and medieval architecture. Expats should be aware that the city is quite small and can be explored on foot. The city is also quite touristy, so it is important to be aware of the crowds and plan accordingly. Expats should also be aware that the city is quite expensive, so budgeting is important. Additionally, the city is quite traditional and conservative, so it is important to be respectful of local customs and traditions. Finally, the city is quite safe, but it is still important to be aware of your surroundings and take necessary precautions," said a member in Bruges, Belgium.

"I wish I'd moved to Bruges years ago. It's a tiny place and all neighbourhoods seem very safe, clean and friendly. I'm not sure about the surrounding areas, but I'd definitely suggest the centre of Bruges or at least within the 8000 postcode. Also, I'd advise paying the estate agent's commission. They'll help you with translation of documents and with setting up your utility bills, etc. Well worth the fee," remarked another expat who made the move to Bruges, Belgium.
