The ticket was included with the ticket to the city hall museum. Both were quite beautiful and worth a quick stop. The carving was amazing.

This site was included in our Brugge Museum Card. It once housed the city's courts. The room is beautiful and the fireplace with its intricately carved wood mantel is worth seeing.

This small museum room is included as part of the Town Hall visitor ticket. The black marble chimney piece/fire surround is beautiful. The ceiling is amazing, so much wood and the carved oak panels paying homage to Emperor Charles V. are well worth taking a long look at to take in how much work was involved in the carvings. There...

Not a huge amount to see, but the carved fireplace is impressive. If your time is limited, not the number 1 attraction, but worth a look. Combined ticket with the Town Hall, which has some good bits.

A small museum next to the Stadthuis, formerly the courthouse with a superb painting of the court in session from century's ago showing that little had changed, other than the people. Magnificent fireplace and worth a few minutes on the museum pass

Very short visit required but worth a visit to see the most amazing fireplace. As with most of the buildings in Bruge great architecture to admire on the outside of the building.

Give it a quick look for the fireplace - massive and impressive. This is pretty much the only interesting thing inside. The outside of the building is very elegant. It's open on Mondays (as well as the Stadhuis) when other places are closed.

Located next to the Stadhuis, it is worth a quick visit inside to view the wonderful carved fireplace. Photographs are allowed inside without a flash and the building also has a lovely exterior.

Every time I go to Bruges I make sure to see this place, especially when there is sunshine. It's so ornate with gold and it attracts the tourists. It was build in the 18th century and can be found near the Burg square.
