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.
