Flanders may be modest in size, but that's exactly why it's wonderful to discover by bicycle, for example. Discover the gems of heritage in their green, natural regions. Flanders is also perfect for exploring cities such as Antwerp, Bruges, Brussels, Ghent, Leuven and Mechelen. A multitude of arts, heritage, gastronomy and other highlights at just a stone's throw from each other.
