love locks


During our stay in Bruges in March, we noticed a few love locks at the entrance gate of the Béguinage. As I explained earlier, a béguinage is a collection of small buildings used by Beguines: a religious movement of women. Even though it is a very private area, you are allowed to walk around as a tourist but there are signs everywhere asking you to be quiet (click HERE to see a 'silence please'-sign I posted before). 



The béguinage is a peaceful place and attracts lots of tourists from around the world every day. These pictures were taken almost 2 months ago, how many couples have put a sign of their love here since then?

Linking to signs, signs.

  3. The 'love locks' is a concept I don't quite understand but I'm sure the lock companies love all the sales!

  9. I vind het helemaal niets die slotjes aan de bruggen. Ze vernielen de bruggen ermee, ze zijn met veel te veel en te zwaar.
