History of Bruges

The name Bruges was first found in the 9th century on coins. Then the name was spelt ‘Bryghia’, a Celtic word which means ‘quay’, since an estuary ‘Het Zwin’ arose by multiple floods.

The link with the sea was the beginning of the economical prosperity of Bruges in the Middle Ages. We could call the 15th century ‘The Golden Age’ of Bruges. The Dukes of Burgundy made Bruges their main residence and attracted a large number of artists. This resulted in beautiful buildings and the heydays for painters of the Flemish School of Primitive Painting.

From the 16th until the 19th century, Bruges (Flanders) was occupied by the Austrians, the Frenchmen and the Dutchmen. With the independence of Belgium in 1830, gradually an economical and cultural revival occurred.

Bruges became cultural capital in 2002 and was declared world heritage by the UNESCO.

Tourism is for Bruges the main source of income.


Sights in Bruges

Bruges has been proclaimed world heritage by UNESCO and there are lots of good reasons for that. Like no other, the historic town centre with its alleys, mansions, churches, canals and museums is so well preserved.

It is a very romantic place, where it's great to live and walk around. But it is also a vibrant, modern and lively city with all modern comfort one would expect in the 21st century. Past and present are mixed in a very harmonious way.

Hotel The Pand is situated in a quiet street in the historic town centre, only a few steps away from the canals, Burg and Market Square, museums and shopping. From the hotel you go to the Burg Square, the administrative heart of the city. The Burg square is a showcase of different European architectural styles. The relic with the blood of Christ is being kept in the Basilica of the Holy Blood in Romanesque style. On the same square, also the Town Hall (Gothic style) and the former Court of Justice in Neo-Classicist style are situated.

Through the Breidelstraat you walk to the Market Square, the former trade centre of the city, which is dominated by the presence of the Belfry Tower. The Belfry with its carillon was the symbol of independence of the people of Bruges. On the top of the tower you have a panoramic view over the city.

Wednesday is market day.
