Bruges looks to heat things up this weekend; from fiery dancing to sparks in the kitchen, there is plenty to keep visitors to the city entertained before they head towards their next destination on board a European river cruise.
Bruges looks to the captivating art of dance with the ¡Flamenco! Festival until the 22nd March. Taking place in the City Theatre, the festival is made up of concerts, films, readings and dancing and celebrates the passion of flamenco style dancing.
This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of American composer Cole Porter’s death, so Bruges is honouring this late star with the Cole Porter Festival over the 13th, 14th and 15th March in the Concertgebouw.
After all of that singing and dancing you may have worked up an appetite, but thankfully there is still the Brugge Culinair event to come. With a weekend full of everything a food lover could ever want, there is plenty to tantalise the taste buds in the former hospital at Congrescentrum Oud Sint-Jan.

All of our onboard dining venues are complimentary, from the casual and relaxed atmosphere of the River Café to the elegance of Portobellos Italian Restaurant and al fresco dining on the Riverview Terrace. Off-ship the dining experiences are often set in spectacular or historic settings such as Marksburg Castle, and range from unique delicious dinners to intimate home-cooked specialities.
