Create an itinerary including Adornesdomein & Jeruzalemkerk
Step into the world of a wealthy pilgrim in Adornesdomein & Jeruzalemkerk, which dates back to the 15th century. Comissioned by a Christian pilgrim recently returned from Jerusalem, the church is full of dark carved wood lit by dim lights. The most famous piece in the chapel is the altar, adorned with skulls and ladders, which recalls an early era in Christianity. This same altar made an appearance in the film "In Bruges." Visit the museum attached to the church where you can read information plaques in English on the church's history, as well as a brief history on the city of Bruges. The church and museum are small and don't take long to tour. Arrange to visit Adornesdomein & Jeruzalemkerk and other attractions in Bruges using our Bruges itinerary builder app.

  • A very interesting insight into the history of a single Bruges family (who still own this property - I think they are on the 17th generation!). The visit starts with a spin through some rooms...

  • Ancient small church with gardens and museum. Fantastic stonework inside the chapel, unfortunately main tomb had been moved for restoration elsewhere

  • Found this on a travel blog. Definitely a little off the radar. Interesting, lovely and quiet. After the visit relaxed in the garden. Totally recommend if you’re looking for something a little low-key but still wonderful.
  • Quirky and well worth a visit. Off the beaten track, so quite quiet. Interesting little museum but the highlight is the Jerusalem Chapel - a replica of one in Jerusalem. Fascinating and still in private ownership after so many centuries.
