A nice couple of steps to get the heart pumping and work off those Belgian fries! Great view from the top and a nice stopping points with information including interactive bell ringing noises. Worth a trip up perhaps the most iconic landmark in Bruges

My partner went up the Belfort Tower and said the views were lovely, I didn't fancy the 366 steps for €10 though & let him get on with it haha. He told me towards the top it was very tight and I suffer from a fear of confined spaces so I am glad I didn't go up. The building is... More

It's a long walk to the top. But doable. The views are very nice. It was a bit overcast when I was in town. It's worth doing. I did get a little sweaty.

When friends told me in Brussels : "let's get to Bruges" I had a different imagination from what i saw. Even the temperature is rather cold during the year, the atmosphere in nice and warm. Many things to see - old churches, museums, the famous channels where small boats drive with turists - and nice restaurants, pubs and chocolate stores.... More

It's not very tall tower, so most people should find the climb quite achievable. At the top you have great views of the surrounding area. The window areas areall blocked (unlike in the film In Bruges) so no jumping out onto the square i'm afraid. If you hang around, or time it right you will be there when the bells... More

You have to climb up here to the Carillon. It is part of the 'In Flanders Field Museum' so it costs 11 Euros to go up with the museum included. In the tower is a computer run carillon that strikes every quarter hour. Nice to see it working. There is also an audio guide that tell you about the set... More

Pay the extra 2€ and climb the tower whilst in the museum. Not too arduous and a lovely view from the top. The bells are loud.

For a mere extra couple of euros, you can add a tower visit to the cost of the In Flanders Field Museum wristlet. This then allows you entrance into the stairway to the bell tower. There are a good number of steps to the top but once there the prospects onto the local area are very worthwhile. Well worth the... More

Visited here in spring 2016. What a fantastic place and a trip up the belfry steps is a must do! Great on a clear day and the views are amazing. Great for those who love a good selfie! We have already booked to come back to Bruges for the Christmas markets this year too and take a trip up the... More
