Flanders, Belgium’s Dutch-speaking region, is located in the heart of Europe. With Brussels as its capital, our region is easy to reach by countless railway and airline connections. Metropolises such as London, Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin are all located only a few hours away. Visitors from the Netherlands can travel here by public transport, by car and – why not? – even on bicycle! Flanders is modest in terms of size – which is actually quite an advantage. Thanks to its scale, you can easily travel between cities like Antwerp, Bruges, Brussels, Ghent, Leuven and Mechelen. These cities are all world-famous for their art, but be sure to explore the lesser-known heritage gems in their green and natural surroundings.
Cycle through a landscape surrounded by water, trees or heather, travelling from hub to hub or along one of the themed iconic cycling routes. Alternatively, you can go walking along the Flemish coastline, through Flanders’ fields or in one of its numerous nature reserves. Quench your thirst with a glass of refreshing Belgian beer. Breathe in the history and heritage of the region’s countless castles and the noble families that once lived in them. Brace yourself to take in the beauty of the Ghent Altarpiece and admire the work of the Flemish Masters and the artists who came after them, in museums, cathedrals and the places where they worked and lived. Tickle your taste buds with dishes created by our expert and innovative chefs, who magically transform local ingredients and seasonal products into culinary masterpieces.
