The Brugse Vrije is the former law court of Bruges. It now houses written history of Bruges as the city archives are based here.
Take a walk through the old court to the renaissance hall, which was once the alderman’s chamber. Here, the highlight is a monumental 16th century wood, marble, and alabaster fireplace known as the Emperor Charles V fireplace, designed by Lanceloot Blondeel.
