Belfry of Bruges, Bruges

4.4
A symbolic landmark in Bruges, Belfry of Bruges represent a medieval bell tower in the historical center of town. The market hall and an inner courtyard stand behind the bell tower. Formerly home to the treasury and municipal archives, the bell tower now offers a view of Bruges from above. Climb the 366 steep steps to reach the tower's top and reap the reward of seeing the grid of canals from this vantage point. Listen to the 47 bells chime on the quarter hour as you hike your way to the top. The tower played a central role in the film "In Bruges."

  • Of many Belfries climbed in Belgium, Bruges was absolutely beautiful. Worth doing for the views of the entire city, Markt and beyond. 366 steps are all worth it!  more »
  • Everyone wants to visit this tower of course. Nice setup. The room was very nice.

  • Avoid queues by going early - The structure itself is beautiful, and shows the riches Bruges gained during the middle ages from trading in mostly wool products. With imports of wool from England and Scotland and weaving these in Flanders. But inform yourself before going, as some of the guides do not give the best information or can not be bothered.
  • The best belfry I've been into! This is the place to follow the path of Colin Farrell's character from 'In Bruges'. 366 challenging stairs will take you up 86 meter into the air. The view from the top is well worth the effort - not only you can see all the medieval houses from above, you get a good view on all the churches around, and the magnificent scenery and trees all the way to the horizon
