Hotspot of the week: Domain Beisbroek

Hotspot of the week: Domain Beisbroek

West of Bruges lays the domain Beisbroek. It's an area rich of forest where in the early middle ages (anno 1100) the Saint-Andrew Abbey was found. In the epos of the crusades, divers abbeys where raised which formed a religious and an intellectual epicenter in this area. Besides the abbeys and farms there are still many castle located in this wide forrest area. A green zone with beautiful nature, where the beech trees and conifers decorate the forrest and the protectet rare red heathland flowers in the grassland. The historic domain offers a lot of reacreational possibilities such as the many walk-and bicycle roads, the galaxy observatory, the nature centrum, a cafeteria,... In short, worth a visit !

A dive in history

From sources it appears that the domain was in the 7th century allready part of the Merovingian crown land Snellegem. In the 9th century it was handed over to the Lord of Flanders, Baldwin the first. From 1115 it came in the ownership from the Saint Andrewabbey (the start of Bruges suburb Sint-Andries~Saint Andrew). From many descriptions from the abbey it's library, many farms and building where located on the domain like the Leghuyt. The Leghuyt was a covered well where the cattle could drink and rest and it is still part of the old 2km long wall that rests on the domain.
Since 1835 the domain was in hands from a very wealthy family who's relatives sold the domain to the city of Bruges in 76, who made it a public domain. In 1985 even the star observatory was founded there!
