Want to explore the Triennial Bruges 2021 trail with a guide? A Triennial Bruges guide will be happy to take you on a guided tour of Bruges' city centre. Along the way, you will become immersed in the story of the Triennial, its theme 'TraumA' and its numerous artistic installations. Thanks to our guides, you will discover the meaning behind the installations, which, for this edition, are often placed in hidden or less visible locations. In short, it is the perfect way to experience the Triennial with friends, family or colleagues! You can choose between different options, on foot or by bike.
Are you with friends, family or simply on your own and would you like a word of explanation from a private guide at the installations? The Triennial Bruges guides of Bruges' three guide associations are ready for you! The two-hour-long tours can be done on foot or by bike, although for the latter you will need to provide your own (rental) bikes. After booking, you agree on the starting location and time with your guide, as well as whether you want to walk or cycle. Special requests regarding a certain route or certain installations you definitely want to visit can also be discussed. It costs €80 per guide and you can book your tour in Dutch, French, German or English (other languages depending on availability). Advance booking is mandatory and can be easily done online or by contacting one of the three Bruges guide associations: Koninklijke Gidsenbond Brugge, Hello Bruges or S-wan Guides with a twist. Reservations can be made up to two days in advance.
A fun walk for children aged 6 to 14 takes place at fixed times (10.00 a.m., 10.30 a.m., 1.00 p.m. and 1.30 p.m.) from Monday to Friday, starting at Biskajerplein, in the shadow of the Poortersloge. On Wednesdays, it is only possible to book a morning walk. Depending on availability, you can book a Dutch-speaking guide (€65 per guide) or a French, German or English-speaking guide (€50 per foreign-language guide).
