Entirely surrounded by medieval ramparts, the city is nested close to its Belfry, classified World Heritage Site by UNESCO
Duration : 30 minutes to 1:30
On the hill which looms over the city, the ruins of a former Benedictine abbey seems to keep guard whereas the yellow brick museum of the Mont de Piété unveils a rich collection…
Whether it is its facade, its places, or traditions, Bergues is one of these Flemish cities where time seems to have stopped.
Its rich heritage, gastronomy, and friendly atmosphere will let you a long lasting impression, in this city considered as ‘the other Bruges of the French Flanders’…
The city beats to the rhythm of its carillon, playing music every quarter of hour.
You can find all the types of restaurants and local specialities such as the Bergues cheese, Bergues sausage or Potsch’vleesch, with refreshing beers.
The city has been highlighted in the movie of Dany Boon ‘Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis’, partly filmed in Bergues in 2007
