Jan van Eyckplein (Jan van Eyck Square)
The Manhattan of Burgundian Bruges in the Middle Ages. A lively port where busy traders assembled from all over Europe, and you could hear every imaginable language. A tangle of people loading and unloading pressed around the Toll House and the Rijkepijndershuis while citizens and merchants watched approvingly from the Burghers’ Lodge. Today the square is dominated by the stately presence of the world-famous master painter Jan van Eyck, and from here you can set off to discover peaceful, quiet working-class neighbourhoods.
Tip: Be sure to look through the VR viewer located in the square on the waterfront. You will be completely immersed in the atmosphere of the 15th-century port quarter!
