The landscape of Flanders Fields. A witness of World War I
More than a century ago, the First World War would forever transform the landscape of the Flanders Fields region. Hundreds of cemeteries, monuments and permanent reminders appeared among the picturesque villages, fields and quiet roads.
During the LANDSCAPES | Feel Flanders Fields theme year (April 2023-August 2024), we invite you to reflect on how these landscapes, which still bear the scars of war over 100 years later, bore witness to the brutal conflict, with a dedicated programme of special events and exhibitions, landscape art and A.R. experiences, but also numerous cycling, walking and sailing routes.
