Sorry to say, but this neat cartoon-like gate is not worth de detour if you haven’t seen al the other marvellous sights, buildings, churches and squares of Bruges. It’s just a pretty gate with on way traffic.

The Kruispoort is one of the historic gates to the city of Bruges, and is a short walk from the city center. It is definitely worth walking over from the Markt to see and walk around the Kruispoort!

An easy walk from Markt, worth doing on a day like Saturday when the crowds increase invade Bruges. We took our 6 year old and there was also a windmill nearby. It's crazy to see this city gate in such good condition and still being...More

If you're in Bruges for more than a couple days, I'd recommend renting a bike to see all the gates and windmills that skirt the inner circular canal all at once, starting with Gentpoort, then moving on to Kruispoort, the windmills (two of which you...More

We had walked all through Bruges to see the Kruispoort. We wanted to walk through it, but had to wait for cars to go through first. Interestingly enough, one faced is square, the other side near the river is round. It's also painted in white...More
