|About these ratings|
In medieval times, the Belfry and Market Halls (translated from Belfort en Hallen) was a bustling marketplace presided over by a soaring gothic bell tower. Today, the echoing chimes of the carillon bells can still be heard throughout Bruges. And you can also climb the tower's 366 steps for a sweeping view of Bruges.
One TripAdvisor visitor says that despite the tower's long lines and the steep steps, you'll be "rewarded with panoramic views over the city and a close-up view of the clock mechanism and bells." Admission is €8 EUR or just about $11 USD, and it's open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. You'll find Belfry and Market Halls at the historic Markt square.
