Church of Our Lady (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk) Tours

Church of Our Lady (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk)
The soaring 400-foot (122-meter) spire-topped brick steeple of the Church of Our Lady – the city’s tallest structure – lends itself to commanding views of Bruges. The spire dominates the Bruges skyline and can be seen from all over the city, while from inside the tower, on a clear day, you can see across Belgium as far as the Netherlands.

The church was built over two centuries (13th-15th) and houses a substantial collection of artworks. The most celebrated of the church’s art collection is a white marble sculpture of the Madonna and Child, created by Michaelangelo in the early 16th century – it is one of the very few Michaelangelo pieces that can be seen outside of Italy. The Church of Our Lady also holds an oil painting depiction of the crucifixion by the Flemish Baroque artist Anthony van Dyck, and a rococo pulpit by Bruges artist Jan Antoon Garemijn.

Behind the altar, in the choir space, you will find the twin gilded bronze tomb sculptures of the duke of Burgundy, Charles the Bold and his daughter, Mary of Burgundy. A windowpane underneath the tombs offers a view of the 13th- and 14th-century graves of priests.
The church is centrally located, close to the Memling Museum, and is open to visitors for limited hours, seven days a week. There is a small fee to enter and see the tombs and artworks.
Address: Mariastraat 8000, Bruges, Belgium
Hours: Mon-Fri 9am-12:30pm, 1:30pm-5pm; Sat 9am-12:30pm, 1:30pm-4pm; Sun 1:30pm-4pm
Admission: €2.50 adults, €1.50 children

Jamal will also give you free time after the tour full of recommendations of must-visit-places, and that includes where and what to eat. Last but not least, the architecture of chocolate will also be tasted during the tour. It would be so silly not to enjoy artisan handmade chocolate in the capital of artisan handmade chocolate of the world.

Private Bruges Walk (3h)

Private Bruges Walk (3h)

Known as the Venice of the North, because of its peaceful canals, Bruges is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It was a justified motive that prompted UNESCO in 2000 to include the entire historical city centre on the World Heritage list. The current city boundaries still coincide exactly with those of the medieval city centre, and the spaces and structures that were so typical of Bruges in the past have been preserved. Walking along the maze of winding cobbled alleys and romantic canals, you imagine yourself to be in medieval times.

Economic crises, social inequalities, wars, climate change, deadly epidemics, … the challenges faced by our medieval ancestors were not so different from today. How did the average medieval man deal with these challenges and what was their impact on everyday life? In search of the answer to those questions, we will guide you through the historic heart of Bruges while painting a picture of life in a medieval metropolis. We do this not only through interesting facts and historical descriptions, but also via a number of fascinating quiz questions that you must answer together.
