This literary and biographical museum about the life of Guido Gezelle (1830-1899), one of Flanders’ most famous poets, was established in the house where he was born, situated in a peaceful working-class district of the city. Here you can discover his life and works, based on five main themes. Visit also the shaded garden with biological vegetable gardens, an ode to the natural beauty which so inspired Gezelle. An oasis of green tranquillity in an authentic district of Bruges. At the museum entrance ‘The man who gives light’ by Jan Fabre inspires all visitors with the fire of poetry.
