"'t Zand" Statues and Friezes Tip by irisbe

Statues and Friezes, Brugge: 12 reviews and 14 photos

  Wim & Eve at 't Zand
by irisbe

Favorite thing: 't Zand is a square where you will find a pretty nice statue and a very huge new building, the city theatre.
There has been a lot of comotion about it because most people think it is an ugly building and is totally misplaced in an old Medieval city as Brugge.
I heard the explanation from the architect that it does communicate with the surrounding old city and this by means of the red cover it has. That last one caused already twice the belated finishing of the building.

No matter what the architect might explain... I can only agree with most of the people I heard: IT IS AN UGGLY BUILDING AND TOTALLY MISPLACED, NO MATTER WHAT THEORY TRIES TO JUSTIFY!

Underneat the square is a huge parking lot. It is not really cheap but the longer you stay the cheaper/hour it gets.

This picture was taken the 18th of January 2003. It shows Eve on her b-day and her boyfriend Wim.

Fondest memory: Every Saturday, from 8 am till 1 pm, there is a market on the square.elke
