A symbolic landmark in Bruges, Belfry of Bruges represent a medieval bell tower in the historical center of town. The market hall and an inner courtyard stand behind the bell tower. Formerly home to the treasury and municipal archives, the bell tower now offers a view of Bruges from above. Climb the 366 steep steps to reach the tower's top and reap the reward of seeing the grid of canals from this vantage point. Listen to the 47 bells chime on the quarter hour as you hike your way to the top. The tower played a central role in the film "In Bruges."

Absolutely amazing. If you go to Belgium, you must visit here. I've been more than 3 times and love it every time. The history is amazing. The buildings are breath taking. If you like history, this place must be on your list of historical places to visit.
A stunning piece of medieval history in the heart of beautiful Bruges. A bit of a wait as only 50 people at a time are allowed up the tower - this was clearly communicated. A steep narrow climb but at no point did it feel congested. Stunning, stunning views from the top. Highly recommended.
