Hemelrijk and Oliebaan
Free Squares and streets Outdoor

Together, Hemelrijk and the Oliebaan form a unique corner of Bruges. In Hemelrijk you'll find an unpaved country road, complete with potholes and ruts, without houses, but bordered by a brick wall just too high to peep over. At first glance the Oliebaan seems just the same, but take a stroll through it and spot the differences. In the distance, you can see the Major Seminary from both, the only orientation point. In short, a spot far from the inhabited world.
