Extend your Cruise with 3 Nights in Bruges & Ghent
Experience Bruges, one of Europe’s most remarkably preserved medieval cities, and witness the architectural treasures of neighboring Ghent and the hallowed World War I battlefields of Flanders.
Day 1 - Ghent & Bruges
Disembark your ship in Antwerp and travel with your Viking Tour Director to Ghent. There, see the towering belfry, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; canals lined with medieval guild houses; and the massive Gravensteen, the 12th-century home of the Counts of Flanders. After lunch and some time for independent exploring, continue to Bruges and check in to your hotel. Your Viking Tour Director is available to help you plan your time in Bruges so you can make the most of your visit. (Lunch)
Day 2 - Bruges
After breakfast, begin a walking tour of Bruges’s historic city center—a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to such important Flemish painters as van Eyck and Memling. Pass the homes of prominent former residents and visit the Béguinage and its gardens. See the Church of Our Lady and view the Gruuthuse palace and gardens, once the medieval home of one of the wealthiest families in Bruges. Then, cruise along the picturesque canals, lined with gabled houses and floral-decorated bridges. (Breakfast)
Day 3 - Bruges
Today, head south to the World War I battlefields around Ypres, immortalized as Flanders Fields in Canadian Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae’s poem. Visit the Flanders Fields American Cemetery and Memorial, the St. Julien Canadian Memorial, Tyne Cot Cemetery and the rebuilt town of Ypres, home of the Menin Gate and In Flanders Fields Museum. Later this afternoon, you will return to Bruges. (Breakfast, Lunch)
