Route Description

Sights Bruges

Bruges has been proclaimed a world heritage site by UNESCO and there are many good reasons for this. Like no other, the historic town centre, with its alleys, houses, churches, canals and museums, is very well preserved. 

Market Square

This is the central square of the city, where you'll find the Belfry, the colourful Guild houses, horse-drawn carriages and the Historium, the experience that will take you back to the Middle Ages.


Towering at a height of 83 meters. After climbing the 366 medieval steps, you'll be rewarded with a breathtaking view of Bruges and the surrounding countryside.

Burg square

A majestic square in Bruges, dominated by the 14th century town hall and the Basilica of the Holy Blood.


Where the Groenerei and the Dijver come together, you’ll find the Rozenhoedkaai (Rosary Quay). For years this has been the most photographed spot of Bruges. This is Bruges in its most charming way.


Some spots are so beautiful that it takes your breath away. A walled oasis of religious tranquillity centered around an imposing courtyard.

Church of Our Lady

One of the 3 towers of the Bruges skyline. The second highest brick church tower in the world. Inside you can admire the white marble "Madonna with child" by Michelangelo.


Bruges is a very romantic place, a great place to stay and stroll around. But it is also a vibrant, modern and lively city with all modern comfort one would expect in the 21st century. Past and present are mixed in a very harmonious way.

Pand 17 is situated in a quiet street in the historic town centre, only a few steps away from the canals, the Burg square, the Market Square, museums and shopping streets. From the guesthouse you can walk to the Burg Square, the administrative heart of the city. The Burg square is a showcase of different European architectural styles. The relic of the Holy Blood is kept in the Romanesque styled Basilica. On the same square, you'll also find the Gothic Town Hall and the Neo-Classicist former Court of Justice.

The Breidelstraat will bring you to the Market Square, the former trade centre of the city, which is dominated by the presence of the Belfry. The Belfry, with its carillon, was the symbol of Bruges' independence and might. On the top of the tower you have a panoramic view over the city and its surroundings.

A weekly market is still held on Wednesdays.
