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.

  • A nice square full of history and many tourists. The buildings around make you feel the unique medieval times. I like the green chairs offering a sit and view to the colourful life around.
  • If you feel like exploring the real historic monuments and architecture, burg square or I should say Bruges in Belgium is a place to be. Plan your visit along with your friends or family and enjoy your stay for couple of days in Bruges. Must visit. Me and my family loved the overall place and the ambience this place has. Do take a boat ride as well to explore the city.
