Beursplein (Exhibition Hall Square)
Free Squares and streets Outdoor

At Beursplein, many lives intersect. This is where you might spot the smartly dressed  professionals, mums on cargo bikes, students getting some fresh air, but also fairgoers on a mission. A steady stream of people against the backdrop of the imposing Bruges Meeting and Convention Centre or BMCC. The state-of-the-art exhibition and conference infrastructure was erected in 2022, on the exact same spot where once stood a slaughterhouse and an earlier exhibition hall. The square was simultaneously renovated as part of a drive for urban renewal. The wide pavements are appreciated by the locals and the preservation of the 50-year-old beech trees met with approval. This way, the square retained its green character. Add to this a handful of benches and Philip Aguirre y Otegui's artwork ’De Bron’ (The Source) and you have a truly 21st-century city square in the middle of the West Bruges district.
