The Brugse Vrije is the former law court of Bruges. It now houses written history of Bruges as the city archives are based there. Take a walk through the old court to the renaissance hall, which was once the alderman's chamber. Here, the highlight is a monumental 16th century wood, marble and alabaster fireplace known as the Emperor Charles V fireplace, designed by Lanceloot Blondeel. A painting by Van Tilborgh shows a session held in the alderman's chamber. Wearing black robes, the members of the alderman's jury, sit ready to have their say. Three defendants stand before them, a justiciary at their side.
