The Boterhuis is a street in the historical center of Bruges.

Originally the Boterhuis was located on the Eiermarkt.
It was the place where dairy products were sold.
In 1540 a new Boterhuis was established, built between the Sint-Jakobsstraat and the Naaldenstraat. The alley that ran alongside it, from one street to another, was spontaneously named Boterhuis.
The Boterhuis made way for a Concertgebouw in 1830. From now on, the dairy products were sold in a lower hall of the city halls, next to the meat products. In the mid-nineteen seventies, this 'Boterhuis' was also lifted.
It is a short but picturesque street. Harry Kmel used them to turn scenes from his film Malpertuis, with Orson Welles.

I hope that you enjoy it
