HOW TO GET THERE CAR

The Concertgebouw is located 4 kilometres from the motorway. On the E40 (Brussels-Ostend) or the E403 (Lille-Kortrijk-Bruges) take exit 8 for Bruges. Follow the N31. Take the ‘Brugge Centrum – Waggel­ water – AZ Sint-Jan’ turnoff. This will lead you into the Bevrijdingslaan. Continue along this road. Pass the third set of traffic lights. About 200 metres after these traffic lights, you will find the entrance to the underground car park ‘Centrum-Zand’. The car park ‘Centrum-Zand’ is located directly beneath the Concertgebouw. Motorists who enter the car park after 7 p.m. and leave it before 7 a.m. are charged a special evening rate of maximum € 2.25 (subject to change by Interparking).
