Bruges

The Huidenvettersplein in the center of Bruges is mainly known as a tourist place, largely furnished to that function.
The square can be reached along the Burg, via the Blinde-Ezelstraat, and along the other side, via Braambergstraat or Rozenhoedkaai. Because of its closed character and its dimensions, one thinks it is more like a courtyard than an actual public place.
The Huidenvettersplein used as a small fish market, so called because the cheaper fish was sold. The surrounding houses were arranged as inns. It was the ordinary people who supplied themselves, the richer people went to buy fish on the neighboring Vismarkt.
In the second half of the 20th century the fish disappeared and the stalls with souvenirs, drawings and paintings came, for the ever-growing tourism in Bruges. The existing jetty at the canal boats continued to grow.
The surrounding houses were almost all shops and restaurants of different levels, with or without a terrace. The Craft House of the Guild of Tanners, built in 1630 and rebuilt in 1912, is still there.

I hope you can enjoy.
