This is definitely worth going to but be aware of
3 key things:

1) Get here ready, there is always a queue as the tower can only accommodate 50 people at any time (so 1 in 1 out)

2) The steps are incredibly steep and narrow; especially at the top near the bells. They are navigable but not for the frail or faint-hearted!

3) the sound of the bells at the top is brilliant and worth the visit...if you can cope with (1) and (2)!

The Belfort is a magnificent structure. Beautifully built and when you venture onto the tower the views of Bruges are stunning.

The view of Brugge from the Belfort top is second only to the fascinating mechanism of the clock. It’s entirely worth the loooooooooong climb up. If you get claustrophobic, avoid it. The stairway is really narrow. It was raining when I climbed up and the experience was magical when I reached the top. And, the clock chimed just in time for me to record some priceless videos.

Although the weather was not too good. the climb and views were very much worth the effort! We were up at exactly 4 o'clock so had the pleasure of hearing the bells ring!

Great view over Brugge, nothing higher. Stairs are narrow, not a great option if you are claustrophobic or scared of heights.
