The square is smaller than Markt and quieter but worth a visit . The exterior of the buildings are impressive and it’s worth visiting the Brasilia of Holy Blood.
It would have been lovely to see the Xmas tree on the square lit up but we had to leave earlier

Beautiful under Christmas lighting, only good to visit after dark. The Christmas tree is beautifully lit.

The outside is impressive architecture. But it is also really worth the visit inside. It is included in the city card pass...

Small but beautifully decorated square not far from the Markt. Well worth the visit. We saw it first on a rickshaw tour then came back on our own.

I didn´t visit any of the buildings at this beautiful little square but I admired their richly decorated facades and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere there. If you were ever looking for a place for street photography this one is definitely one of the right ones.
Once already in Bruges you won´t miss it but I think it is even worth it to plan a trip to Bruges just because of it.

The Markt or Market Square may be the heart of Bruges, but Burg Square is the soul. Just around the corner from its more famous and more photographed counterpart for centuries the square was and still is the centre of administration for the city. Featuring the 14th Century City Hall and Basilica of the Holy Blood among other buildings, many no doubt are unaware of what awaits them around the corner. This square may be smaller than the more famous Markt but in its own way is just as beautiful and important - and a lot quieter.

The buildings are stunning and even more so when decorated for Christmas- with a huge tree in the middle of the square. Lovely to sit on a bench and watch the world go by....
