In winter, picturesque Bruges is even more beautiful, and its historic city centre is utterly enchanting. If the winter frost becomes too much for you, just head for St. John’s Hospital, one of the oldest preserved hospital buildings in Europe, where today, it serves as a museum. This winter you can visit Face to Face with Death, an exhibition composed around The Death of the Virgin, the masterpiece by Flemish Primitive Hugo van der Goes. The exhibition explores this special topic in six themes, created using a number of masterpieces by, among others, Hans Memling, Jan Provoost and Albrecht Bouts. An unforgettable encounter with the Flemish Primitives.
