Had to climb to the top after this place featured heavily in one of my favourite films, In Bruges. Was a challenging ascent and very narrow in some places. Colin Farrell’s character was correct when he suggested the obese Americans would struggle to get to the top! Great view and worth the climb.

Yes you need to be fit. 366 steps and especially the last 33 need to be taken. But it is very informative and you get a wonderful view of the city. Of course with Covid 19 you need to register beforehand. Beware every 15 minutes the bells are ringing and that is pretty loud.

I'm from Bruges and took my 6 yo son for the first time to the belfry. We had to make a reservation beforehand, so there was no queue. As residents from Bruges we could enter for free. The climb to the top was very calm, barely any other people to see. As you get higher it also gets steeper and more narrow. The drum that drives the bells is really impressive when you see it in action. My son got a bit nervous just before the end of the climb but the steep and narrow part is not that long. Views are of course spectacular. Even with the mesh. You should stay there until the hour or half hour to hear the bells chime (quite loud, son had to cover his ears). Way down was more difficult, but as there was no one else in the staircase, we could take our time. Definitely recommended.

If you are traveling in the summer of 2020, make sure to reserve a spot online. We were welcomed by lovely and friendly staff, and had a nice climb up the tower. The view is magnificent!
