What a great little book, ideal for those trips to Bruges for long weekends away. The book quality is very good, the delivery was very quick. The contents of the book are ideal if you've never visited Bruges or Brussels with the information you'd need to make it an enjoyable trip.

4.0 out of 5 stars More on Brussels than Bruges ... 1 Nov 2012
By Human
Verified Purchase
Slightly disappointing as I had assumed (quite wrongly) that the book would be split more evenly between Brussels & Bruges. However, only a small proportion of the book was relating to Bruges, which was the main purpose of buying the book, and this is why I have given it a rating of 4 out of 5. However, it provided some good information on Bruges and now we have information on Brussels for when we go.

I purchased this book to research a one day trip from Paris and it has everything I need to know. Clear, smart & concise, glossy maps and pertinent information to take on the go. Thanks Frommer's!

I'm sure everyone has a certain style of travel book that they prefer so I could be biased, but I always go for the Frommer's Day by Day books for each new city I travel to. It's so helpful to know what sights you must see and restaurants you must eat at if you have only one, two, or three days in a major city. It also has suggestions on what to see and do if you're an art aficionado, have kids, or other special interests. I love that the book is small and easy to transport (can fit in your pocket) but is sort of like a "choose your own adventure" book, where you can pick how you want to see a city and it has it all laid out for you.

For the high ratings the Frommer's Day by Day books had, I expected them to be a lot better. I got this and the Paris book for a recent trip and was very disappointed. The maps are not great, I wasn't impressed. You can easily see pretty much all of Brussels in one day of walking if you have a plan and this book only had you going a handful of places in "the best in one day" section. Another example was the Notre Dame de Sablon church. This guide barely mentions it at all in the middle of a section on one page in the "the best in two days" section. Along with this book we had Rick Steves' Snapshot Bruges & Brussels in which he had it as a "don't miss". This ended up being one of our favorite things to see in Brussels and we would have totally missed it if we had only been using the Frommer's book.

I would highly recommend the Rick Steves book over the Frommer's. Rick Steves' walking tours in his book were WAY better and he gave much more insider info that really helps if you've never been there before. Very disappointed in this book.
