Jerusalem Church (Jeruzalemkerk), Bruges
(4/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Step into the world of a wealthy pilgrim in Jerusalem Church (Jeruzalemkerk), which dates back to the 15th century. Comissioned by a Christian pilgrim recently returned from Jerusalem, the church is full of dark carved wood lit by dim lights. The most famous piece in the chapel is the altar, adorned with skulls and ladders, which recalls an early era in Christianity. This same altar made an appearance in the film "In Bruges." Visit the museum attached to the church where you can read information plaques in English on the church's history, as well as a brief history on the city of Bruges. The church and museum are small and don't take long to tour. Arrange to visit Jerusalem Church (Jeruzalemkerk) and other attractions in Bruges using our Bruges vacation trip planner.

  • This very special Church is really very surprising! Nothing of a traditional church, but impressive.

  • This Chapel is part of the fifteenth century loud Adornes domain, with a museum, cottages, courtyard and garden. The whole is well preserved and restored. The chapel architecture is surprising and original

  • It is the only private church that still exists in Bruges, not really that known for the tourists. But I like Banya from it's more than worth it. The mystical is so palpable, thanks to the noble family for opening their church a gem in our Club's history.
