What a joy to find - this very quirky and delightful building with an atmosphere all its own. Its relationship to the lace making school was interesting and well worth a visit.
Tucked away from the crowds at the other churches and cathedrals, on the eastern side of Brugge, not far from one of the city gates (Kruispoort) is the Jerusalem Chapel/Church. If you visit the Kantcentrum then entrance to the chapel is included in the ticket price, which was how I got to see it (otherwise there is an entrance fee... More

My wife was disappointed in the lace museum as we were not there during a time when the demonstrations were taking place. However, the woman in the shop was very knowledgable and helpful. There were... More
