Burg - Review

In its golden age between the 12th and the 15th centuries Bruges was a booming town. And a growing town can't make do with one square. Burg square is the town's second medieval square. A similar feel to the Markt Square with its cafes and shops but without the looming presence of the Belfry over you. The architecture here is fantastic; just walk around slowly soaking in the beauty. Take a camera along, but you'll end up boring your friends because you'll find a lot of fascinating architectural bits and bobbles to capture. Sometimes there are live music performances in the square. Some of the buildings of note are the Town Hall, the Basilica of the Holy Blood and the Old Civil Registry, which is, surprisingly for Bruges, built in the Renaissance style.

Acquaint yourself with the renaissance style medieval square of Burg taking the tickets for Burg. While the architectural fascinating square is free to explore, we recommend you to buy tickets for Burg as the Burg tickets come with an experienced guide who will give a detailed info on the significance of the place.
