The Meebrug interrupts the Meestraat and connects the Reie with the Groenerei.

The first mention of the Meebrug dates back to 1290. However, the current name is only used for the first time in 1440. This bridge, like the nearby PERENbrug, has an important connection between the city center and the adjacent suburb, so-called the "Braamberg, early on. ", because the latter was added to the city center shortly before 1246. In 1390 the original wooden bridge was replaced by a stone one, built by the famous Bruges bridge builder Jan van Oudenaerde ( 1412). The Meebrug is a simple arched bridge with a cobbled road surface. The exterior consists of regularly hewn blocks of Brabant white stone in combination with bluestone for the keystones of the arches and cover shelves. The parapets on the west side and the entire east side of the bridge are made of brick.

I hope you like it
