Ancient Brugge, Brugge: 53 reviews and 108 photos

Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekirk was built between the second half of the 13th. century and the second half of the 15th. century, it is the largest gothic church in the low countries. Its style has changed over time from late Romanesque, Scheldt-Gothic to French Gothic. the 18th. century saw a more contemporary style then around the 1900's the church re captured her original medieval style. The spire which towers up to 122 metres (400 feet) is a stonemasons work of art. Strange to think after using all those brick that the cathedral at Antwerp wins the highest steeple award by a mere metre. Our Lady's Church is not the most important church in Brugge Saint Salvators has the honour but it is the most popular with touists. The Church is open Tuesday - Friday 9.00-12.00 1.30-17.00 Saturday 9.00-12.30 1.30-16.00 Sunday 1.30 - 17.00 closed Monday's except Easter and Whit Monday. Admission is free.
