This guide, as with all Lonely Planet Guides I've read, details simply all the information you require in order to maximise the pleasure of your stay, in this case within Flander's main cities.
Each page contains a wealth of (always relevant) info on Eating, Drinking, Shopping, Art, Music, Accomodation, Local Eccentricities, Travel Practicalities, Accurate Maps and much more besides.
In 6 days in Bruges it never left my side; I reckon it saved me it's cover value EACH DAY. In addition I would probably have missed maybe 30% of 'attractions' without it.
More than recommended, its indispensible, even if you visit only one of the three included cities.
