Bed & Breakfast Huyze Walburga is listed on the inventory of architectural heritage of Bruges. Between 1580 and 1800 this building has already been entered in the old land register of the St-Janszestendelen. Those registers provided information on the successive owners. The then name of the building was ‘Huyze Den Wulf’, the old street name and number ‘Verwers Dyck’ A3/46. This property has a great rarity value. During the renovation of 1985 all the original and art-historical valuable structures have been optimally conserved. We are the proud owners of an official permission (classification: luxurious) to run a guest room, awarded on July the 23th of 2014 by International Tourism Flanders.

The Ververs dijk

During the Middle Ages Bruges was one of the most important commercial towns of North West Europe. The Verversdijk, also called ‘Verwersdyc’, has been mentioned already in documents of 1290. In those days the Verversdijk was the heart of the mercantile city. This street is situated between the former ‘Hanzekwartier’ and the working-class district St.-Anna. It was named after the workman of the textile dyeworks. There used to live ‘blue dyers’ in particularly. Bruges became a thriving city, partly due to the processing of wool into sheets. The wool was imported from England and Scotland. That is why the street facing the Verversdijk used to be called the ‘Schotten Rei’ (or freely translated freely: the Scottish canal), which goes under the name of ‘St. Anna Rei’ now.

the merchants

Stock exchange in the inn ‘Ter Beurze’

The merchants who bought valuable fabrics, brought along merchandise as well, so as to trade all sorts of goods from many European countries. The stock trade – which we know now as stock exchange like Wall Street and The London Stock Exchange, was set up by the Italians, who were trading in the inn ‘Ter Beurze’. Derived names are: de beurs (Dutch), la bourse (French) and la borsa (Italian).

Well-known merchants of the Verversdijk:
John Smith, the fictitious representative of an English wool merchant in Bruges. Anselmus Adornes, a merchant with Italian roots who traded with Genua, who mediated in a dispute with Scotland. He also owned a building nearby the ‘Schottendijk’.
