Of all of the highlights in Brugge, the Madonna with Child is argueably the most famous icon located in the city. The recent movie "The Monuments Men" centers on the search and recovery of several iconic art pieces including the "Brugge Madonna".
The Church is undergoing massive restoration efforts and most of the interior is covered in tarps and scaffolding. The entrance fee to view the Brugge Madonna has been reduced to one Euro due to construction (well worth the cost). A small segment of the Church requires the entrance fee but most of the Church that is open to the public is free.
Make sure to visit the gardens and the old stone bridge just outside the Church. This time of year these outside venues are very picturesque to include streetside classical musicians.
