You enter a virtual world full of beer and receive a fascinating explanation about the underground beer pipeline that connects the brewery in the city center with the bottling plant on the outskirts of Bruges.

Our Lady's Church

The Church of Our Lady is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture. With its 115.6 meter high tower, the church has the second highest wooden tower in the world. After several rounds of restoration, the interior shines more than ever. Be sure to visit Michel Angelo’s statue “The Madonna and Child” inside. A beautifully painful sculpture sculpted from Carrara marble. You can also visit the 15th and 16th century tombs of Charles the Bold and his unfortunate daughter Mary of Burgundy.


The Beguinage is the ideal place to relax during your stroll through Bruges. An oasis of peace surrounded by greenery with small, white-painted houses. In 1998, UNESCO recognized the Bruges Beguinage, along with 12 other Flemish beguinages, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
