I found this square overly touristy and tacky. When we were there, a few tacky carnival booths were set up and it was sort of sad. The buildings were classic Bruges and to be fair, if it had been nicer weather, we might have liked it better but it seemed much ado about nothing.

The market actually city centre had a police event with orchestra and bands playing , the area is like a court with loads of shops and avenues to branch off and lots eating places

As always we visited the main market square. We were here at Christmas and again in spring and you can see the transformation, its look bigger and better. The two chip stands are a permanent feature and they do come in handy when you just want to sit down and snack.

I’m sure it is a spectacular picturesque place surrounded as it is by eateries but the Trashy Easter market is all fairground attractions and sweets for the very young.
Shame, will come back when the fair has gone.

The Markt is main is the equivalent of Brussels Grand Place on a smaller scale. Just as beautiful and a must in Bruges.
