Minnewaterpark (Lake of Love)

If you are in love now (or soon to be) the Lake of Love in Minnewater Park is the place to be. Let the unfortunate and tragic romance of Minna and her warrior love Stromberg be your lucky spark when you cross over the bridge.

In the south part of Bruges, surrounded by trees and the adjacent Minnewaterpark, you’ll find a small rectangular lake called Minnewater or the Lake of Love. The tragic romance of Minna and her warrior love Stromberg has evolved into local legend that says you will experience eternal love if you walk over the lake bridge with your partner.

But, there's no need to feel any pressure. Whether or not a couple professes undying devotion during the walk, the Lake of Love is an exceptionally romantic spot. Enjoy the scenery from the lake bridge, one of the benches along the lake, or stroll through the calm park.
