Dear Friend of Flanders,

In view of the COVID-19-situation, specific safety measures and additional restrictions are currently in place across Belgium. You will find more detailed information on following website. For the latest travel advice to our country, please consult your local authorities.

If you are travelling to Flanders, Brussels or elsewhere in Belgium for a duration of 48 hours or more, you will need to complete a Passenger Locator Form, within the 48 hours before your arrival in Belgium. 

Take good care of yourself and each other and keep it safe and healthy.  

We hope to welcome you again soon, with twice the heart, love and hospitality. 

Warm regards,

“Free Fatherland” does not focus on the battlefield of the Great War, but rather on the last piece of unoccupied Belgium, the so-called Belgian Sector from which King Albert I held his own against the German invader. You experience the story behind the front, the everyday life in this unoccupied area. You see a veritable melting-pot of people, multiculturalism before the term existed. The atmospheric exposition deals with themes like healthcare, education and jurisdiction through modern media and traditional elements.
