A walk around the Walplein

A walk around the Walplein

The Walplein demonstrates that a city with a strong medieval flavour such as Bruges can also make space for more modern art.”De Goden bezoeken Brugge" ("The Gods Visit Bruges") is homage to the modern tourist, with a nod to Greek mythology. This square is also familiar with the tradition of beer brewing. The last brewery of the town is established here with its beer “Brugse Zot” (the lunatic of bruges).
