OFF-SEASON ACTIVITIES IN BRUGES
BACH ACADEMIE IN JANUARY
Few cities can count as many eye-catching architectural feats as Bruges, and it's also home to a thriving music scene. Stemming from a radical church reform in 1517, music as we knew it evolved within these city walls, and you can learn all about it in a series of events hosted by the Bach Academie.
Starting in January, indulge in the musical richness of Martin Luther and Johann Sebastian Bach, along with a jazz regeneration by saxophonist Robin Verheyen.
WINTERVONKEN IN FEBRUARY
The fourth edition of this winter festival once again guarantees scintillating street theatre, atmospheric concerts and heart-warming fire installations set in the Burg square - the cultural beating heart of Bruges.
A yearly extravaganza falling in February, this is the perfect chance to see Bruges at its best, with aerobatics, theater performances and stunning light displays.
A top class gallery famous for its remarkable collection of 18th and 19th century Flemish works, wander into the imagination of the great Belgian painters of the past at the astounding Groeninge Museum.
