This was one of my favorite parts of the museum. It is well worth the extra fee! Not a ton of steps and try to make it up to the top for the bells! Plan your climb for the top of the hour. The pictures up here of the town and area are amazing. I Highly recommend a visit here!

It’s only a 231 steps journey towards great views. You can walk around the roof tower and see the cities and towns which once were the center of WW 1 battles. On all four sides there are signs with info. During the ascent you pass the carillon. The tour is fun, it will set you down a 2 euro each.

There are lots of steps, it is a tower after all! The queue can get very long, but it does move relatively quickly on a one out one in basis with a maximum of 50 people at any time. The carillon at the top is worth the climb. A good visit.

We visited the Cloth Hall Belfry as part of a visit to the ‘In Flanders Fields’ museum and indeed entrance to the belfry is directly from this museum. The belfry is reached via a set of spiral staircases in a tower which brings the visit to a large room with a metal spiral staircase winding up to the belfry itself. Note that a visit here may not be either for those with mobility issues or a fear of heights and indeed two of our party decided not to complete the trip to the top. On reaching the belfry the visit can see all of the bells hanging on a large metal frame with both the larger bells for ringing rounds and striking the hours and their smaller counterparts which sound the chimes on the quarter and half hours. Bearing in mind that the bells chime the quarter hours, visitors should be aware of the time when they enter the belfry. We were present when the clock struck the hour and it is very loud mitigated by fingers in the ears There a are some headphone sets in the belfry itself and these seemed to be playing recordings of other bell towers chiming when I tried them. However, presumably these could be used as ear defenders when the bells chime. From here, the visitor takes to the roof of the Cloth Hall tower and gets some impressive elevated views of both Ypres and the surrounding area. Strategically positioned plaques point out places of interest that may be seen from the top of the tower, such as Tyne Cot cemetery and the direction of the village at Passchendaele. It is possible to get some fine photographs from this vantage point particularly if you have the opportunity for ‘panoramic’ shots.t The return trip back to the museum is made via a separate set of spiral staircases, the whole tour route is on a ‘one way’ system. I was very pleased to have taken the opportunity to climb to the top of the tower and would thoroughly recommend it to other visitors to Ypres if you can.

Time management is not something that was invented yesterday.... it has been on the minds of all humans from the beginning of time... This is how the locals in Bruges managed 'time'.
