Burg Square, Bruges

4.7
It's hard to miss Burg Square, the site of the city hall and bustling cafes. The attraction has been an administration hub since its construction. The 1376 city hall building is known as one of the Bruges' most beautiful landmarks, but it has some competition in the square with Charlemagne's cathedral and the Renaissance civil registry. In fact, almost every era of European architecture is represented in the surrounding buildings. Sit down at one of the cafes to people-watch against the backdrop of grandiose buildings and monuments. Put Burg Square and other Bruges attractions into our Bruges travel route builder website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • For me the only thing remarkable, beyond the great Christmas tree of these dates, is the impressive facade of the town hall.

  • It's definitely a little too much tourist attraction, but the history is so beautiful, especially the chocolates are great, don't leave without trying the waffles

  • Absolutely stunning place. Amazing architecture. Chocolate heaven. Good and drinks were exquisite. Very friendly and Lively place. Clean and well presented. We will definitely recommend this place.
  • Where you get the horse drawn carriage. Also great place to eat lunch at any of the restaurants. Crowded area, there are better places in this city but great place.
