Very nice place. Near many restaurants. We saw a wedding ceremony, beautiful. It is easy walk to the Market Place. Near Basilica of the Holy Blood, with a drop of the blood of Christ.

Come for the Architecure, stay for the History (and fireplace). It is part of Brugge' old city tour and should not be missed.

Included in the Brugge’s City Hall, I’ve been intrigued by the name of this building: Palace (Landhuis, in Flemish) of the Liberty. So I went in with my wife and we both stayed very good surprised by the excellent, beautiful Renaissance architecture. There is also an incredibile black marble fireplace, that is something rare to be seen even in a... More

We only went here because it was included in the price of the ticket to see Town Hall, but I'm glad we went. We didn't stay long at all, but were able to see a beautiful wood fireplace inside. Since its right in Burg Square and near everything else, its worth a visit.

The previous reviewer Voyager101Canada and others have described this astonishing Renaissancezaal Brugse Vrije (Renaissance Hall of the Liberty of Bruges) as well as I could and all I can add is that I was almost mesmerised by the beauty of the fireplace with its frieze and oak chimneypiece. There are informative sheets in various languages. The paintings on the walls... More

As part of our ticket to the Bruges' City Hall, we were offered free entrance to the Palace of the Liberty of Bruges. I always wanted to go in that establishment, as the outside of this building is so beautiful! So much gold! I was astonished by the beauty of its fireplace, built out of superb black marble. Naturally it... More

Vrije was the earlier courtroom that has been converted into a museum now but has just 1 small room with art wirjs and a fireplace with intricate carvings all around. I guess no one would visit the museum by itself so good that the ticket is included in tge ticket of tge city hall next door.

When you buy your ticket for the Stadhuis you also get entry to visit the room here at Brugse Vrije. You'll probably spend no more than five minutes here and it's nowhere near as impressive as Stadhuis' Gothic Hall, but as it's included in your ticket price it's worth seeing.

This fireplace in the old courtroom features some remarkable 16th century wood carving. An interesting painting shows the room in use for a trial long ago. The cost of entry is included in a visit to the Stadhuis next door (which is worth seeing) so it's worth a quick look here as you are passing.
