One of the most important principles of Triennale Brugge 2018 is to help shape hospitable public spaces. That is why Triennale Brugge strives for easy access for everyone, including people with disabilities. All works are wheelchair accessible, some with assistance. Guide dogs are admitted at all locations.

The following installations are accessible for wheelchairs with assistance only:

During the festive opening on 6 May, Inter escorts will be available to allow wheelchair users and people with physical disabilities to participate optimally in the activities.

How to get there

Parking facilities

Bruges is a compact city. The use of motor vehicles in the historic inner city is not recommended. Parking your car in the city centre is subject to charge. In the “Blue Zone” (the designated streets surrounding the city centre, within walking distance of the installations) you may park for up to four hours without charge. Don’t forget you still need to display your parking disk!. 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 by bicycle, on foot or using public bus transport.
