Beautiful decoration on facade

The historic centre of Bruges is dominated by the cloth hall and the 83 metres high Belfry tower. It was constructed around 1240 and housed a treasury and the municipal archives house. The tower was largely rebuilt after it was destroyed by fire in 1280. Its octagonal upper stage was added between 1482 and 1486.

The top of the tower offers breathtaking panoramic views which can be admired after climbing the 366 steps.
