We advise everyone to use public transport. That is why we start in Bruges at the railway station. If you do come by car, you can park for one or more days in the parking lot of the station itself at a very reasonable price.
Tip: if you come from another place in Belgium, consider buying a WeekendTicket to Blankenberge.
Tip 2: If you are travelling with 2 people and you need to return from Blankenberge to Bruges while parked at the station, consider a Duo Ticket.
