The belfry of Kortrijk, or Belfort in Dutch, is a medieval bell tower in the historical centre of Kortrijk, Belgium. One of the city's most prominent symbols, the belfry formerly housed a treasury and the municipal archives, and served as an observation post for spotting fires and other danger. A narrow, steep staircase, accessible by the public without any entry fee, leads to the top of the building, which nowadays leans about a bit to the west.Put Belfry of Kortrijk on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kortrijk online route planner.
The Belfry has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1999.
