The entrance to the tower is very accessible through the Flanders Fielfd Museum. I was lucky with the sunny weather so I had a beautiful view over the city and the region. The walking parts on the roof are narrow, you can hardly pass anyone. This can lead to dangerous situations when crowdy. But, on the other hand, it does... More

Not for the feint hearted. There is 200 plus steps but it's worth it up top. Worth the two euros extra. Time it for a good clear day if you can and then you can see the various key battlefields.

We had access to the Belfry from the "In Flanders Fields Museum." We had to scan our ticket and it allowed us to visit the Belfry. Naturally we had to climb a lot of stairs, but it was worthwhile! The Belfry has its own carillon, which is quite harmonious! They existed since the 13th century! Wow! They sounded the hours,... More

A nice couple of steps to get the heart pumping and work off those Belgian fries! Great view from the top and a nice stopping points with information including interactive bell ringing noises. Worth a trip up perhaps the most iconic landmark in Bruges

My partner went up the Belfort Tower and said the views were lovely, I didn't fancy the 366 steps for €10 though & let him get on with it haha. He told me towards the top it was very tight and I suffer from a fear of confined spaces so I am glad I didn't go up. The building is... More

It's a long walk to the top. But doable. The views are very nice. It was a bit overcast when I was in town. It's worth doing. I did get a little sweaty.

When friends told me in Brussels : "let's get to Bruges" I had a different imagination from what i saw. Even the temperature is rather cold during the year, the atmosphere in nice and warm. Many things to see - old churches, museums, the famous channels where small boats drive with turists - and nice restaurants, pubs and chocolate stores.... More

It's not very tall tower, so most people should find the climb quite achievable. At the top you have great views of the surrounding area. The window areas areall blocked (unlike in the film In Bruges) so no jumping out onto the square i'm afraid. If you hang around, or time it right you will be there when the bells... More

You have to climb up here to the Carillon. It is part of the 'In Flanders Field Museum' so it costs 11 Euros to go up with the museum included. In the tower is a computer run carillon that strikes every quarter hour. Nice to see it working. There is also an audio guide that tell you about the set... More
