This is an amazing tower and if you have the energy, do walk to the top. It will be worth the view. The bell tower is also slightly leaning, which I must admit that you need to look closely to realise!!

Quite an energetic climb but worth it for the view of Brugge. A beautiful city. Loved the history . There was quite a queue so go early, but a chat with people and the time soon went.

We went to visit the tower; which in its own right is famous. There was a celebration going on in the courtyard which was great. The line for the tower was very long. We ended up having to leave due to time. Plan accordingly if...More

I always enjoy climbing old towers like this. Narrow steps, a little scary at times, but fascinating. Worth the climbing the 366 for the experience and the view. There are rest areas where you can catch your breath and they provide some history exhibits. Worth...More

Loved this! We climbed the Belfort just in time to hear the chimes at the top of the hour. It was fascinating to hear (well, with our fingers in our ears!) and watch. The views were beautiful and yes, the climb was steep and we...More

The Belford is an imposing tower in the Markt of Bruges. My wife and I decided not to climb to the top, especially not for €12. It is an impressive structure.

Despite the fact that it was 30 degrees we decided to make the 366 step climb, mainly to see what Colin Farrell had seen in the movie In Bruges! It’s a tough climb, the spiral stairs getting progressively narrower and steep (almost at a crawl...More

Best to go when it first opens or later in the day as this very popular attraction will have a queue . It’s well worth climbing the 366 steps to the viewing platform in the bell tower as the views are GREAT . There are...More

Plenty of steps up to see a great view of the city, a stunning part of the local history it needs to be done despite the long wait to get in. Borderline value for money with a €12 entrance fee.

The steps are old and narrow, and that makes the experience fun for me. There are areas to stop and rest so you don't have to climb all the way to the top at once. Once on top, though, the view is worth it.
