    Hello All,

    Last time I went there the service point was in very poor condition... no water as I remember... and they were charging full price.

    Does anybody have a recent update?

    We're off to Brugge on Wednesday for a few days.

    Thanks Andy, looks like they've changed the service point. It was one that you had to put a coin in to lift a roller shutter door, even to get to the chemical disposal.

    Needless to say, the door was often forced and broken

    Cheers.

    was there this morning I used that point to dump my cassette but I didnt see fresh water hose the yellow hose in pic is now on top. the coach park had water you pay for. I parked in the Aire across road and that has no toilet dump but a grey waste grate and water at 50c 100 litres get there early at around 1pm I got last spot saturday.

    Beautiful Brugge, we often refer to it as our second home, albeit an expensive aire. Toby Trux.

    Is it worth the difference from camp Memling? Memling was €52 for 2'for 3'nights - walkable to town and new facilities.
    If you go there are 2 restaurants worth trying - "pro deo" in laangtraat - small welcoming good Jazz and a great steak, and "De Stove" near main square - great food and need to book. Only one waitress and one cook with fresh cooking so don't be in a hurry.
    For lunch we ate in the fish restaurant by the small fish market - excellent.

    I am pretty sure the parking on the other side of the road (the left as you approach from the Train Station) has fresh water. We used that side last Winter and did not go across to the other side.

    I assume it gets you out of the aire when you've lost your ticket!

    "Verloren" = "Lost".

    Just a thought, somebody could stop a week, claim they lost the ticket and pay 50E

    The missus can't walk far and the aire very close to the old town which is adequate for us so was looking forward to it but it is ME that needs wifi to contact family over XMAS, anybody found a connection with a booster at the aire?

    We were there on Friday night, watched a guy with an English registered Pilote go back and forth with two plastic gerry cans to the tap in the photo. Wouldn't fancy it myself but each to their own. We visited the ice sculpture as the last time we saw ice sculptures at Brugge they were fantastic, unfortunately this year's was a total rip off, so would not recommend. One other thing to remember is to pay at the building before you exit as the exit only reads the tickets.

    Just come back from Brugge this morning, but stayed in a hotel for a long weekend.
    Its nowhere near as nice as Ghent, and the christmas market is tiny,,,both of them.

    Even the chocolate isn't made in Brugge, it all comes from switzerland, exactly the same as Ypres,or ghent, or brussels or even Aldi.
    There's only one shop in brugge which actually makes it's own chocolate,,,or so we was told by a local.
