What is it? At the heart of Bruges city centre – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – stands the Belfort, a bell tower built in the fifteenth century.
Why go? This is Bruges’ unmissable attraction – the Eiffel Tower or Empire State Building of the city if you will. Make the 366-step climb on the hour to hear the tower’s incredible ensemble of bells ringing out their special tunes. One tip – only a select number of people are allowed to climb up the belfry tower at one time so the queues can get pretty big. Avoid prime time slots or take some snacks and an episode of your favourite Netflix show for the wait.
