Discover Burgundian splendour at the renovated site of the Gruuthuse Museum, a luxurious 15th century city palace that will reopen its doors in 2019. The museum’s rich collection will guide you through 500 years of Bruges history. An intimate prayer chapel links the palace with the adjacent Church of Our Lady. In this way, the lords of Gruuthuse were able to follow the religious services in comfort and privacy. The church’s showpiece is the beautiful white marble statue of the Madonna and Child by Michelangelo, which leaves no visitor unmoved.
