Picture Perfect Bruges
The canals of Bruges have formed the arteries of the city for centuries. They meander through the city and treat you to a magnificent view around every bend. The world-famous view from the Rozenhoedkaai of both the Belfry and the canals is the most photographed place in Bruges.
The Markt and Burg: Must-Sees
Two majestic squares next to each other, the Markt and the Burg, are the beating heart of the city. The Markt (Market Square) has been dominated by the Belfry for centuries. The 14th-century town hall and the Basilica of the Holy Blood are both located in the Burg.
The Flemish Primitives
Admire masterpieces created in Bruges centuries ago at the Groeninge Museum, St. John’s Hospital and the treasury of St. Savior’s Cathedral, Bruges’ oldest parish church. Discover numerous art treasures donated by wealthy donors from the area in St. James’s Church (Sint-Jakobskerk) in the Steenstraatkwartier.
Discover 500 years of Bruges history in the Gruuthusemuseum, a luxurious 15th-century city palace. What really catches the eye is the intimate private chapel that connects the palace with the Church of Our Lady. The church itself houses a masterpiece: Michelangelo’s gorgeous white marble Madonna and Child.
Peace And Quiet In The Begijnhof
The Begijnhof (Beguinage) is a walled oasis of religious peace. The crooked trees, white facades and quiet charm even the biggest cynic.
