We were inspired to tackle the 366 steps after watching the film In Bruges! Our first attempt saw us queue for ages - they only let 70 people up at a time - and leave disappointed. However we recommend you go first thing in the morning, which is what we did the next day. You have all the room to yourself which makes the stairway easier to negotiate. Unfortunately it was raining, as it quite often does in Bruges, but still had a great view of the area. Not sure it's worth the entry fee, but it is a must do! By the way from the beginning of July Bruges is rammed with tourists so try and go earlier in the year if possible!
