Cultural attractions at the water's edge

The Bruges Royal Municipal Theatre, the Concertgebouw Brugge, the Magdalena Concert Hall, ... are cultural highlights in Bruges. This is part of the cultural heritage, so take time off to make sure you don't miss your favourite artist, actor or singer when they come to the Venice of the North or to discover the local artists by the waterside. Bruges talent, such as Wouter De Backer, has been exported internationally with the song "Somebody That I Used To Know", which was voted "Recording of the Year" at the 2013 Grammys. As you explore the city and its alleys, you will dive into a wide range of cultural and musical events such as the MA Festival Brugge, the Brugge Tripel Dagen, the Klinkers Festival and the Bruges Jazz Festival.

Where to party and have fun in Bruges?

It starts with a desire to preserve its historical charm, De Coulissen is the only nightclub in the city and offers an eclectic programme. Night owls need not to worry, as Bruges nights are still lively. Wherever you are, there are plenty of bars to discover in the old town or in the Kuipersstraat and Zilverstraat, for example. If you're looking for pure relaxation, what about the less party-animals? You have throughout the week and the year a range of events proper to local culture such as museum workshops on Belgian gastronomy and music. The Choco-Story Chocolate Museum and the Sound Factory music museum (on the fifth floor of the Concertgebouw) are examples of the cultural heritage of the Venice of the North.

Bruges culture floats on the canals

Just a stone's throw from Ghent and not far from Lille, Bruges is a tourist city known for its medieval beauty and its romantic canals. On Culturius you will discover a charming city and also a cultural destination. On your travel diary, you can visit the Groeningemuseum, the Carillon Belfry or the Halve Maan brewery, for example, to immerse yourself in the history of Bruges culture. You will enjoy works by Flemish primitives such as Jan van Eyck, a breathtaking view of the city and how Belgian beer «Brugse Zot» is brewed within each of these attractions. And for those looking for an original cultural experience, the Venice of the North has taken up street art with projects such as Legendz and the Bridges festival.
