The Dolls of Death


The Venetian Lady once played a wonderful tune on the piano in this most haunted house we are looking for....

She played it for her lover, who was a descendant of the Menapic druids that once lived here. He specialised in the manufacturing of the terrible Wax Dolls of Death.



Witches and warlocks were often asked to bring about a ‘manipulation of love’. Because of their intervention, a great love could be conquered or a broken heart avenged. Or a husband who got in the way suddenly suffered great torment and died in agony.


The Dolls of Death were baptised with the name of the victim and stabbed with hot and poisoned needles, before being cursed forever.

The Venetian Lady requested her lover to use a Doll on her old and rich husband. But this man, a butcher, suspected something and replaced his cut off fingernail by a lock of hair from the wicked druid...




The butcher went after his Venetian Lady, while her druid succumbed under hellish pains and she was hiding in the haunted house we are looking for...

Sometime later, the police found her body, on a bed soaked with her blood. The police searched and searched hard, but they never found her head. Maybe it got lost in Horror House?



Some nights the ghost of the Venetian Lady has been seen, head under the arm, wandering through the streets of Bruges-la-Morte, whispering: ‘My dear druid... Where have you gone?’




Meanwhile her sinister husband plunges himself in the Lake of Love, as he has done for the last few centuries...

The Pianist, Invisible


In the following message the name of a composer and one of his most popular compositions were transmitted to us by the Ouija Medium in a numerologic code.

Give us the name of the composer and of his composition:









In this most haunted house of Bruges-la-Morte we’re looking for, one can hear IIIII14II 1112IIIII14II 14I382013V19III11, one of the most popular compositions of 23O1267I147 I13I4IO19 13O26I1819. Children from all around climb each other’s shoulders to catch a glimpse of the grand piano that was left in the house by the last occupants. The lid is always open, a piano stool in place. And every night, this wonderful music is sounding through the street...





At midnight, the house is completely deserted. In each of the rooms, it’s pitch black, apart from the room in which the grand piano plays the same wonderful melody, night after night, caught in a web of white light…

What are you saying? That you can’t see the piano player? But nevertheless, the keys of the instrument are touched by invisible fingers! And look… A beautiful young Venetian Lady dances to the tunes straight through the front wall of the mystery mansion we are looking for. And she disappears into the night fog...




Do you see it? And can you hear now the rattling of carriage wheels on the shiny cobblestones in the street?
 
A magnificent coach appears from around the corner. It is pulled by two pitch black horses and the coachman is a sinister looking man – dark, old and sombre. He hesitates for a moment, then whips the horses and…






If you ever feel the need to follow this coach and coachman, you should remember that every night they disappear through the impenetrable black mirror of the Lake of Love…

What the Ouija Board told us...


We are searching for one particular, very haunted house, here in Bruges-la-Morte. We need the the name of the street and the address of this house.  During a number of seances with the Ouija board, a medium has made contact with the spirit world and has received some orders and coded messages.




‘Ouija’ is pronounced ‘Wiedja’. It’s a combination of the French and German word for ‘yes’. The Ouija board is a piece of paper or cardboard, or a wooden board with letters, numbers and the words ‘yes’ and ‘no’. It can be used with a glass, pendulum or board to pass on messages and its purpose is to communicate with the spirit world. Just like the tarot game, the Ouija board is an oracle: it answers the questions you ask.

In the True & Sad Story of Love Lake, communicated to us through the Ouija board, the name of a street is hidden (in Dutch, of course). Go for it:






Minna (an old Dutch word for ‘love’) lived ith her old father in a small fisher’s cabin by the Reie canal. Her father had sailed his whole life the wild waters of the North Sea. Now the lived from the few fish the Reie gave them, while he dreamt of a young fellow who would oce again take his boat onto the wild waters. Minna’s father thouht of a guy like Hornbeck, the son of a fisherman, but Minn was madly in love with the young farmer Stromberg.


‘A farmer is not suitable party for a fisherman’s daughter’, Minna’s father said. And that’s why Minna met her lover in secret on the banks of the Reie, where they hid in the reeds.

Then war broke out. The fishemen stayed at home, but the farmers went to war an Minna’s father seized the opportunity. ‘Within three days, you will marry Hornbeck’, he said.

Minna cried for two days and nights, but on the third day he fled into the dunes. From morning till evening she ran through heather and woods until she fell down by the banks of the Reie, completely exhaused.

When Stomberg came back home, people said his beloved had vanished without a trace. He went out to look for her, and found her in their secret hiding place... and Minna died that night in his arms.

The sun rose and Stromberg created dam in the Reie. Now the fishermen downstream only found fish in the mud, despertely gasping for air.

In the dry bed Stromberg dug a grave for Minna. He covered her body with a blanket of water lilies, and stayed with her a full night. After that, he let the water stream again.

Soon the grave of his dead love reflected the heavenly blue sky. And Sromberg rolled a heavy black stone onto the roerbank in which he hacked the letters:
