A small city in a big story.

Troops of the German Emperor occupied Bruges for more than 4 years. During the First World War, the people of Bruges and hundreds of refugees had to share their city with the occupier, while their fathers, husbands and sons were fighting on the other side of the front line.

How did daily life in Bruges unfold? Where did the nickname for Bruges come from: the "Poperinge of the Germans"? The exhibition also enables us to find out how, despite these years of war, Bruges escaped damage.

- Every day, from 09:30 to 17:00
