Walking in Bruges 2019 on Saturday afternoon with camera in hand.

The Blinde Ezelbrug crosses the Reie and connects the Burg with the Vismarkt, via the Blinde Ezelstraat.

The Blinde Donkey Bridge was originally one of the four bridges that provided access to the tenth-century burial castle. However, the current bridge was built in 1855 to a design by the Bruges city architect Jean-Brunon Rudd (1792-1870). Originally the bridge had iron railings and stalls were built on either side for the sale of fish. A few years later, when the bridge was widened and lowered, the stalls were demolished. In 1955 the iron railings were replaced by stone parapets.
The Blinde Donkey Bridge is a simple, almost flat arch bridge, the road surface is covered with cobblestones. The arch of the parapet and parapets is made of natural stone, covered with bluestone cover sheets. At the widening on the southwest side there is a brick trumpet.
I hope that you enjoy it
