Immaculately restored, this 15th-century castle sits steps away from the Markt and Belfy. Graceful elegance flows through its palatial grounds to its luxury rooms swathed in beautiful fabrics and ornate furnishings, and boasting original features, such as timber beams. Unwind with a steam bath, massage treatment or dip in the indoor pool in the lavish spa centre, and settle into an armchair in the cosy bar, or enjoy tea on the terrace before a sumptuous meal in the elegant restaurant adorned with antique furnishings and chandeliers.

Attractions near the Kempinski Hotel Dukes’ Palace Bruges
Bruges’ cultural hub
The Markt in Bruges is a place of history, culture and entertainment, located only a short walk from the hotel. With its many historic landmarks and street performers, the Markt is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the Belgium lifestyle.
Of course you’ll want to climb the Belfry of Bruges, a medieval bell tower from the 12th Century that provides a great view of the city and surrounding countryside. Also in the Markt is the impressive Provinical Court building, designed in a neo-Gothic style, and a large statue of two war heroes.
The Basilica of the Holy Blood has a somewhat foreboding exterior of dark Romanesque and Gothic architecture, but on the inside is far more bright and colourful. It’s located within walking distance from the hotel.
Once you enter the chapel of Saint Basil, in the lower half of the Basilica, and you will be amazed by the level of preservation of this early 12th-Century building. The upper chapel is magnificently coloured in beautiful artwork and stained-glass windows. Make sure you see the Relic of the Holy Blood, a small phial said to contain a cloth with the blood of Jesus Christ.
