Belfry Tower - Belfort, Brugge
I hope you are as fortunate as I was with the view and the weather when it is your turn to climb those steps.....
The Market square is completely dominated by the cloth hall and the 83 meter high Belfry tower, one of the symbols of the city.
The Belfry Tower is beautiful, and provides a great view of this medieval city. It also provides a great landmark to help navigate!
I tasted my first authentic frites at the base of the tower.
The belfrey looks imposing but looking up at it doesn't give you a true sence of its height. The view from the top is amazing.
Infront of the Belfry Tower, is a miniature of it. Its made especially for the blind people. By touching the miniature they can see how the Belfry Tower looks like.
When you are walking in Brugge, you will see teh belfort tower everywhere. To get up on the tower, you got to climb 366 steps.
When you enter the Belfry, you have some nice views too, also from the tower. During summer you can enjoy carillon concerts on the square. If you want to climb the Belfry, this is the starting point.
While I didn't have a chance to climb the tower (I arrived 15 minutes too late), I heard the view is quite impressive from the top.
Well its not often I take a really good pic so I thouhgt I would put this one on for everyone to enjoy. I think it would be a shame to leave it on my hard drive collecting dust. (haha)
This pic was taken from the Belfry tower, one of Brugges most remarkables landmark. I think the Architecture is breath taking.
The Markt square is dominated by the Befkr tower. You can climb up the very many stairs to get a bird's eye view of the town.
This is a cat's eye view of the tower...;-)
This photograph with the belfry in the background was taken at the bottom of the road where we were staying. It looks such a peaceful setting.
this 88m high tower, dating from the Middle Ages,is really worth a visit. After climbing 366 steps, you reach the top with a panoramic view over the city.
visit the belfry with its 366 steps
symbol of the independence during the medieval days and for once a tower which is not a church!
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD...CLIMB THE BELFORT!! It can get crowded..not for the claustrophobic or those in poor health. Watch your step!
This picture says it all.
