Belfry Tower - Belfort, Brugge: 122 reviews and 180 photos


The Market square is dominated by the Belfort, a mediaeval belfry tower built between 1482 and 1486. Standing 83 metres high and with 366 steps the tower dominates the market square. Visitors can climb to the top to admire the panoramic view of the city passing the clock carillon of 47 bells which ring every 15 minutes.

In the market-place of Bruges stands the belfry old and brown;
Thrice consumed and thrice rebuilded, still it watches o'er the town.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
