  • Conference Dinner at the Concert Hall Bruges
    (19h00-23h00)

    The conference dinner will be held on the top floor of the Concert Hall, offering an overview of the beautiful city of Bruges by night.

    The Concert Hall in Bruges is rather new. It was built in 2002 close to the historical city. The building located at 't Zand was erected for 'Bruges 2002, Cultural capital of Europe'. The lantern tower itself consists mainly of glass. From there, you have a unique view on Bruges and surroundings, even up to the port of Bruges. Architects Paul Robbrecht and Hilde Daem designed the building. The opinions about the architectural appearance of the building are rather divided. Some locals find it an unwieldy construction that does not fit within the historical framework of the city. Others find that the harmony between modern and historical architecture is a direct hit. Its façades are covered with thousands of red terracotta tiles, 68,000 in total, all baked in Saint Omer in Northern France.
