“Burg Square”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Very close to our hotel. The market on Wednesdays is well worth a visit as are the museums and churches.

“The Gothic Hall was beautiful”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

This is a charming square, quieter than the Markt, surrounded by mediaeval buildings of great beauty. The highlight for us was the STADHUIS – CITY HALL. You must go up the stairs to the amazing Gotische Zaal (gothic hall) - it is stunning in its rich Gothic architecture and outstanding decor. Stunning murals, vaulted ceilings that are stunningly decorated, renaissance fireplace. There are good explanation sheets in English. A buliding of this magnitude and wealth shows what the economic importance of Bruges was as a trading city down the centuries.
Also worth seeing in the square if the HEILIGE-BLOEDBASILK - beautiful statues on the entrance, colourful chapel upstairs, where phial supposedly containing Christ’s blood is kept
