Small place, which is interesting to see if you have some extra time. Has information on the history of the family that owns it.

We were advised to visit the Jerusalem Church by the owner of the hotel we were staying at and it was her enthusiasm for the church that persuaded us to make the visit. The church is well away from the centre of Bruges, I would guess at around 2 kilometres, and from the outside look's nothing but our landladies enthusiasm... More

A tiny church with a carefully designed tiny museum about its history, mainly about the story about the story of Anselm Adornes. Quite unique. The Scottish lounge in it is delightful to rest in for a while, which was quite a surprise.

This building like many others in Bruge is beautiful, the architecture inside is fantastic, painting around the inside are amazing, worth the walk, and there are plenty of cafe's around to stop and take a break

We visited here in December. It is a little off the beaten path and wasn't crowded at all. It is a beautiful church and on beautiful grounds. I would imagine in the spring it is even more spectacular. They have a video that I recommend watching first to get a better understanding of the history of the church. The cathedral... More

Worth the walk to see this privately owned church (which also appeared briefly in the film 'In Bruges') as its not on among the main tourist locations.

Lovely church which is really worth a visit. I would say that you should have a look if you have time. Beautiful inside and very nice to look at.

We visited here with our two small children. The church is very impressive and definitely worth a look. I found the museum a little disappointing though, it was 7 euros each (the children were free) but the museum was only small and I found it quite tricky to look at any of the information whilst chasing round after my two...

This church is great because it is different to the other churches in the city. It is privately owned so you need to pay to go in and there is a very informative little museum attached to the church. You can also enjoy a coffee on the patio overlooking a small garden. The interior of the church is beautifully decorated.... More

Interesting church to visit and you are able to read a lot about the history. Inside the church you can see a splinter from the supposed cross of Christ. Less hassle than the Basilica of the Holy Blood. Funny how they managed to find all of these items!
