Top Rated Attractions in Bruges

Search Radius (Miles)
Belfry of Bruges

Probably the most notable structure in Bruges is the Belfry. This prominent tower constructed first in the 13th Century and refurbished over the centuries has remained a sentinel over the city for over 700 years. The Belfry today allows visitors access, however the 300 or so odd steps up to the top require a bit of cardio fitness and the carilloneur or bell-ringer hits those 47 on the hour. The bells range from the very small to the extremely gigantic, in fact, the largest bell weighs over five tons.

Muziekclub 4AD

Muziekclub 4AD as the name suggests is a club dedicated to music. Throughout the year, it hosts concerts featuring local, national and even international artists and bands. There is no restriction about the genres being played here, from pop to jazz, the events calender boasts off a vivid variety. Though, primarily, 4AD focuses on music, musicians, singers and song writers, it also ventures beyond that and hosts art exhibitions, drama, workshops, seminars and similar events pertaining to different forms of art. Given the nature of events held here and its pursuit for innovation, Muziekclub 4AD can rightly be touted as creative hub of the city.

The Beguinage (Beginhof)

A beguinage in the Middle Ages was known as a place of refuge for women in danger, those of ill-repute or simply lay-women who sought something other than a secular life. Through a clearing of poplar trees and daffodil-laden fields, the peculiar white houses of Bruges' Beguinage can be seen. This utterly serene beguinage dates back to the 13th century, a time when more and more women were committing themselves to a life of piety. The buildings dotting the tranquil expanse are newer as compared to the actual institution, and date back to the 19th century. Although the beguines no longer reside here, the beguinage is still home to several nuns of the Benedictine order. It diligently promotes silence in its environs, a reason why there is always an air of quietude in its surroundings.

Basilica of the Holy Blood (Heilig-Bloedbasiliek)

This basilica as its namesake suggests, allegedly contains a relic of Christ, brought forth by Joseph of Arimithea. The cathedral itself is a mish-mash of Gothic and Romanesque styles and is composed of two chapels, the opulence of the basilica is quite impressive (as most Catholic churches usually are) and to see the relic, go to the upper chapel and there is a silver tabernacle that contains the rock-crystal vial with Jesus' blood.

Saint Salvator's Cathedral

A much newer cathedral than Our Beloved Lady right nearby, the Sint-Salvator Cathedral is an amalgam of architecture dating from as far back as the 9th Century up to the present day. Today, the church holds the largest congregation in Bruges and the tapestries by Jasper van der Borcht in 1731 are just one of the highlights while here.

Cultuurcentrum De Grote Post

Designed by the architect Gaston Eysselinck, this historic structure was built in the early 1950s and served as a post office in Ostend. It was in 1981 that it was declared a protected monument, even dubbed a masterpiece in Flemish architecture. With a splendid sculpture by Jozef Cantré at its entrance, the post office was revived and converted into a buzzing cultural center in 2013. Today the Cultuurcentrum De Grote Post, with its large concert halls, dance studios, an amphitheater and cafe, is leading a cultural revolution. Expect performances by some of the best talents in the country, be it theater, music or dance, at this majestic venue that has stood the test of time.
