18th eawe PhD Seminar

2-4 November 2022


With more than 100 hotels throughout the city, Bruges offers a wide range of accommodations. In Bruges, everything is literally within walking distance. Whether you prefer a well-known chain, a local family-run hotel, or state of the art backpackers hostel: you can always rely on receiving a personal, high-quality, multilingual service. 

The hotels listed below are a short list of possible accommodation in Bruges. They are within walking distance of the seminar venue (BMCC) and the social events. Moreover, they offer a large number of rooms, which will allow you to stay in the same accommodation than your fellow PhD seminar attendees. We recommend to book early since the seminar does coincide with a national holiday, which can result in an increased number of bookings despite the fact that it will be off-season.
