This picture is taken Saturday afternoon Bruges

This place was originally called Bergpoel or Ten Berghpoele. Galbert van Brugge described it as a swampy lake, in which one could drown and sometimes corpses of executed criminals were thrown out. One has to think that you were here at the back of the Grote Markt. The name Bergpoel remained in use until 1600.
Meanwhile, the name Eiermarkt was also used, which initially related more to the activity than on the spot. After all, it was the place where mud products had its center, mud pool or not. In 1288 there was already a butterhouse or butter halle. The halle was rebuilt in 1404, but left in 1540 for the new Boterhuis in Sint-Jakobsstraat. In 1580, the halle on the Egg Market was demolished because of erosion.
