World's Most Romantic Cities

Slide 23 of 26

Bruges, Belgium

Why go: Bruges is one of Europe’s loveliest and most-visited medieval cities, with tree-lined canals and Gothic churches. It’s particularly serene in the winter, when you can ice skate on the frozen canals and warm up in local pubs.

Where to stay: Located in the former home of a 19th-century baron, Hotel Oud Huis de Peellaert underwent a complete renovation in 2010. Rooms from around $170;

Where to eat: Daily-caught fish is the specialty at Restaurant De Stove, a 20-seat spot known for its fireplaces, changing menu and emphasis on house-made ingredients.
