Charming, boutique hotel on the banks of the most photographed canal in Bruges, with an art collection including works by Matisse and Klimt
One of Bruges’ most iconic and romantic hotels, Relais Bourgondisch Cruyce has played host to celebrities and royalty like Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde of Belgium, David Gilmour, Olivia Newton John, and Paul Verhoeven. It served as an inspiration for poets and writers such as Georges Rodenbach and Rainer Maria Wilke, and Winston Churchill painted there. What’s drawn the over the years are the hotel’s many period charms, including stained glass windows, half-timbered facades, candelabra-style wall sconces, toile wallcoverings and draperies, Louis Vuitton trunks, and heavily tapestried window seats. A simple restaurant offers breakfast and room service, and hotel guests enjoy special treatment at the classic Maria von Bourgondie restaurant, a short walk away. A 24-hour reception desk handles administrative duties and can advise on restaurant reservations, opera tickets, guided tours, and other excursions.

One of Belgium’s if not Europe’s most beautiful cities, the medieval city of Bruges positively drips with magic and romance.
