Take a tour of Belfry of Brugge in Brugge, Belgium – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. In the city of Brugge, Belgium there stands an ancient and imposing tower. This belfry is quite old and has held an immense importance to the city’s citizens. The beautiful Gothic structure is attached to what was once the grand market hall. It was built in 1240 and its bells were used to alert the town to news. The belfry once had a spire, but after three fires and reconstructions, it was lost. It's a long ascension up the 366 steps to the top, but the panorama atop the tower makes the climb worthwhile.
