I think the only way to visit and climb the Belfry is by entering the In Flanders Fields Museum for an extra 2 euros. At the top there's amazing views of St Martins Cathedral and St Peters Church in the distance. There's over 230 steps...More

You have to tell the ticketing office that you wish to visit the belfry too, otherwise your band will not let you through the turnstile. There are a lot of steps but should be ok for most fit people.

The entrance to the tower is very accessible through the Flanders Fielfd Museum. I was lucky with the sunny weather so I had a beautiful view over the city and the region. The walking parts on the roof are narrow, you can hardly pass anyone....More
