The Belfort

At the Grote Markt of Bruges, Belgium you can find a big tower called the Belfort, integrated into other buildings. It is 83 meters high and was built during the 13th century CE. It is a symbol for the power of the citizens and still today no building is allowed to be higher then the Belfort.

If you want to day some sports you can climb the steps up to the visitor platform. Every day you can listen to the sound of 47 bells located in the tower. It is one of the locations of the 2008 film In Bruges by Martin McDonagh.
