Burg Square, Bruges

4.7
It's hard to miss Burg Square, the site of the city hall and bustling cafes. The attraction has been an administration hub since its construction. The 1376 city hall building is known as one of the Bruges' most beautiful landmarks, but it has some competition in the square with Charlemagne's cathedral and the Renaissance civil registry. In fact, almost every era of European architecture is represented in the surrounding buildings. Sit down at one of the cafes to people-watch against the backdrop of grandiose buildings and monuments. Put Burg Square and other Bruges attractions into our Bruges travel route builder website, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Burg square connects to the Market by a short street and is right in the heart of the old-town Brugge.  more »
  • There is nothing special about this square, however was was nice and interesting was the significant buildings with different types of architecture. Only needs a quick visit, but nice all the same.  more »

  • Just wow. Stunning architecture with amazing history. The site of an old cathedral which was destroyed in a past war. This is easily one of the most gorgeous places in the whole of Bruges. As you can see, it’s an ideal place for a Christmas celebration as well. It’s truly a gorgeous spot.
  • Lovely little square just off the main Markt sq... Make sure to grab a traditional Belgian waffle from the white truck in the corner! So delicious
