Belfry of Bruges (Belfort van Brugge) Tours and Activities

star-5
625 Reviews

Dominating the city skyline from all angles, the striking, 83-meter high Belfry (Belfort) is one of Bruges’ most iconic landmarks, standing proud over the central Market Square. Dating back to 1240, the historic bell tower has undergone a number of changes over the years, damaged by fire in the late 13th-century and hit by lightning twice. Today, the Belfort is both a UNESCO World heritage site and one of the city’s top tourist attractions.

A popular pastime for visitors is climbing the 366 spiraling steps to the top of the 83-meter-high tower, from where the panoramic views look out over the entire city and it’s possible to peek inside the carillon with its 47 bells and impressive clockwork mechanism. Along the way, a number of small rooms are also open to the public, including the old treasury, where the city’s rights and charters were once kept, and an exhibition on the tower’s bells.

Architectural Tour of Bruges

A walking guided tour thought several walls, canals and architecture eras of Bruges. The best way to experience the history of a medieval town is through its architecture. Therefore, the main focus of this tour is architecture ad its details that reflect milestones in the history of Bruges. Jamal will stretch architecture, legends, art, love, and tiny details for you by a monodrama and sarcasm. Jamal will also give you free time after the tour full of recommendations of must-visit-places, and that includes where and what to eat. Last but not least, the architecture of chocolate will also be tasted during the tour. It would be so silly not to enjoy artisan handmade chocolate in the capital of artisan handmade chocolate of the world.
