Slightly out of the main tourist trek adds to the charm of this lovely place. The church is beautiful & "different" so worth a visit & the Scottish Lounge a pleasant non commercialised gem (an honesty cafe).

I'm not particularly religious, but I find this church fascinating and not because it's a 'replica'. It has an alter piece that alone is worth the entrance fee. It's amazing and despite being a little out of the way, is worth the walk. I'd love the give a detailed description here, but I'm afraid it may spoil your pleasure. Take... More

In a medieval city like Brugge there are plenty of churches to visit if you are interested in history. This one is still privately owned and is both unusual in shape and content. If you are from Scotland then this is a MUST when visiting Brugge because of its Scottish connections. There is a good video intro next to the... More

This church goes back over 600 years and has been maintained by the same family for the entire time. The chapel is small but unique. The backdrop of skulls behind an alter is something I've never seen before. The relic this church claims is a piece of the true cross.

Highly recommend a visit here, it has the blood of Christ on display. We enjoyed mass as well. Check the hours of opening and viewing the blood of Christ before you go.

I visited this chapel this week with colleagues, everybody liked it. Not many people and because we were with a group, entrance was only 5 Euro (otherwise 7 Euro). Also funny that at the back, there is a very tiny space,you need to bent to get in, where a Christ is buried. The remains are not there but the most... More

We went into the Jerusalem Church using the Bruges city card, so value for money wasn't really on the agenda. We first watched the film, which was genuinely interesting (in contrast to many of these sorts of things) and laid the groundwork for what we saw in the museum. The museum area was was informative and helped us to make... More

If this site were in any other city it would be a top three attraction. It dates back to the 15th century and still contains most of the original structures. The devout Italian merchant who built it went on a trip to the holy land and attempted to recreate the Holy Sepulrchre including the Jesus cave. It is crazy in... More

This church is full of surprises as the outside gives no clue as to how different the interior is. A church with an interesting life story that we learnt on the evening guided walk, we found the inside totally captivating.
