Bruges from the comfort of your Home
Your Bruges experience
Who are we? We are two friends having met each other over twenty years ago in one of the many local bars of Bruges. One left the city to become an entertainer in sunny resorts. The other left Bruges to go to unversity and to eventually start his career in Brussels.
Our life paths had thus led us away from home to Spain, Cabo Verde, the Netherlands and even the United States. But everytime when we came back to visit friends and family, we rediscovered the beauty of Bruges.
Ultimately, life led us back to our city and we were fortunate enough to experience the best Bruges has to offer every single day. Its amazing views, surrounding landscapes, bars, restaurants, local beers, chocolate and cookies (yes cookies too).
Recently, however, like many other cities in Europe and around the globe, life grounded to a halt. The once vibrant city center of Bruges was suddenly no more.
That’s where we decided to bring Bruges back to the people. How? What if we could fit Bruges into a box and ship it around the globe. But…
How do you put Bruges into a Box? When you visit a city, you want to wander into the streets. Therefore, we give you your personal guided tour. You want to taste it. So, we have selected three typical local beers for you to enjoy in addition to the best artisan chocolate and cookies our city has to offer. And if that’s not enough, we have also included a recipe book containing the recipes of our most typical local dishes for you to recreate in your own kitchen.
We leave it up to you to discover the “Game of Swans“.
We admit that selecting Bruges’ best for you was a lot of fun. But it’s the creative process and the cooperation with local artists that has made this a unique and joyful experience.
Rest assured; we have tried to put all of Bruges into a single Box but failed miserably. Therefore, we hope to welcome you soon in our beautiful city!
With love from Bruges,
Filip & Lars
It may be a cliché, but if you have ever heard of Bruges it is likely you will think of three things: beer, chocolate and cookies. Yes, it is true our city is famous for all these products. So we went out there and handpicked (and tasted and retasted) these for you.
We grew up with these products and each of them brings us back to great memories (or sometimes loss of memories). Time for you to make your own!
PS: Before you drink all the beer, just know that it can be one of the ingredients you may need to recreate one of our local dishes!
Each player puts their pawn on start and takes a turn to roll the dice.
Swans, boat trips and camera flashes!
Be aware whoever thinks he or she is about to win might end up back at start!
Your personal guide in a box?
