Back to the series of Bruges with a part of the city where tourists almost never come.

The Golden-Handrei is a stream and a street in Bruges. The chorus goes, as an extension of the Augustijnenrei Tower Bridge to the Langerei. The same street is located on the south shore. The Golden-Handrei is spanned by the Tower Bridge and the Golden-Hand Bridge.
Rei in Dutch = A small canal or River
Originally, the Golden-Handrei was called "St. Gillisreitje", to the north adjoining parish of Saint Giles. Later, after 1700, the chorus was called to a house in the Golden-Hand Street.
Gold-Handrei is part of the Club's first city wall and, along with the Smedenrei the Speelmansrei and Augustijnenrei dug in 1127-1128. Possibly the water and could possibly partly the bed of it, although unsightly, brook Lane used. In 1270, the Golden-Handrei, along with the other inner canals deepened to make it possible for shipping. Until the early 20th century laid regularly ships to the Golden-Handrei and was the Golden-Hand Bridge a swing
