For the 34rd year in a row we organize fairs in the Belfort in Bruges Belgium.
In 2020 we present an exclusive international two-days dolls and teddy bears fair
that will be held in the most beautiful city in Belgium!
The atmosphere in the amazing city of Bruges (also called little Venice) and the
beautiful hall on the ground floor of the Belfry, give you an
unmistakable feeling of nostalgia and fits perfectly with our event.

A mix of extraordinarily artfully made dolls and teddy bears in combination with beautiful antique
and old dolls and Reborn dolls will be offered for sale. The old dolls in combination with
contemporary dolls,  teddy bears and other plusche animals provide an incredibly fun and
interesting variation.

The regular admission price is for
adults € 7, - and 65+ € 6, - per child up to 12 years for free accompanied by an adult..

unload your car. Participants must cross the square in front of the Belfry. (where the fries cars are)
through the old gate to unload the car in the courtyard. Important: After unloading, first park your

can set up your stand.
Don't park you car in front of the Belfry on the market square, you will certainly be fined by the police!
Because of the limited space there is no catering. We as an organization provide you with coffee and
tea in a separate room at the back of the hall (free of charge). The toilets can also be used, however,
only for participants (free of charge). We ask you to leave these spaces tidy after use.

Bruges is a compact city. The use of motor vehicles in the historic inner city is not recommended.
Situated within walking distance from the city centre are different car parks where parking is free.
Slightly further from the city centre there are some free of charge P+R parking facilities from where
the city centre can be reached either using public transport, or by bicycle.
For these car parks, please check here.

In the “Blue Zone” (the designated area surrounding the city centre) you may park for up to four
hours without charge. Don’t forget you still need to display your parking disk!

Between 09:00 a.m. and 08:00 p.m. surface level parking in the city centre is limited in time
(4 hours maximum) and is metered (€ 1.80 for the first hour, € 2.40 for the second up to the fouth hour,
in total € 9.00 for 4 hours). Payment can be made either via sms, or using the app 4411, or making use
of your bank card, or using cash money. In each of these cases, one has to register one’s correct
licence plate number.
Parking in the city-centre is unlimited and most cost-effective at one of the two central car parks:
Centrum-Station (railway station) and Centrum-’t Zand.
Both are situated within walking distance of the Market square,
but you can also use the bus transfer with ‘De Lijn’ between the
parking Centrum-Station and the city centre (included in your parking fee for 4 passengers).

Please check here for all metered public car parks in the city centre and the rates applicable.

If you’re staying in Bruges, ask about the parking facilities at your accommodation in advance.

Taking your dog to a busy event, how nice is that for your four-legged friend?
Too often we have a nice day as owner, but it is less fun for the dog than we realize. An public event is bursting with sounds, smells, and people with caressing and grasping hands, for a dog an event can be a terrible ordeal, many dogs show stress or even exhaustion. We as an organization and dog lovers advise: Leave your dog in his/her comfort zone at home.
