Brimming with creativity, beauty and heritage

Take a walk on the creative side

It’s not a coincidence that many fashion and art geniuses were born and raised in Flanders. From designers like Ann Demeulemeester and Nicolas Ghesquière, and legendary painters like Rubens and Van Eyck, Flanders is buzzing with creativity. Broaden your creative horizons at MoMu, Antwerp’s fashion museum and academy, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp (KMSKA), or Ghent’s museum district.

Heritage and history

If you want to learn more about Belgium’s rich history, you need to put Flanders on the list. Witness the hardships of WWI soldiers in Flanders Fields in Ypres. Or, if that’s not your cup of tea, you can learn more about a miner’s life at C-Mine in Limburg. The list goes on, but if you’re looking for heritage, Flanders will not disappoint.

A breath of fresh air

Flanders is known for its natural sites and cycling routes waiting for you to explore them. Not only will you encounter vast meadows, fields and forests as soon as you leave the larger cities. You can also visit vast national parks, like The Hoge Kempen National Park – a unique nature reserve with extensive pine forests and gorgeous purple flowers. And, last but not least, don’t forget about our large, wonderful seaside. The perfect place to catch your breath and soak up all the beauty Flanders has to offer.
