Get to know Flanders with Viator
Honey-hued beaches, sleepy brick-built towns, and flat countryside trimmed with poplar trees characterize the northern Belgium region of Flanders. Around the city of Ypres—the hub of World War I’s Western Front—somber battlefields, museums, and white-marble cemeteries like Tyne Cot honor the dead. But outshining all are Flanders’ medieval crowd-pleasers: Bruges, with its cobbled squares, belfry, breweries, and chocolatiers; and history-steeped Ghent, where gabled houses, canalside bars, and foodie hangouts rule.
