Bruges – Rosary Quay (Rozenhoedkaai)

This place is one of the most popular in the city. Whether in summer or in winter, under a radiant sun or rain even with a morning mist or at nightfall, this place is at all times of an unmistakable charm. We appreciate the view on the other side of the canal. The reflection of century-old houses in the water and the famous weeping willow whose foliage brushes the river are majestic. It is even possible that swans join in for a photo.

The old salt port of the city originally bore the name of Zoutendzhik. It bears its current name due to the sale of rosaries that took place there until the 18th century.

If you choose to take a boat trip, this is likely to be your starting point. The place can therefore be very busy at times.
