Nostalgia

You can breathe in the atmosphere of the past in several places in the Lys Valley. From Wervik to Ghent, there are lots of choices along the Golden River.
You'll find traces of a rich past in historic cities like Kortrijk (Battle of the Spurs), Menen (fortified town) and Ghent with its three famous towers. Outside the city centres you'll find beautiful architecture, such as Rumbeke Castle and Ooidonk Castle. Fans of old handicrafts will enjoy the National Tobacco Museum in Wervik. This is only a small fraction of our wide selection. You can gain more inspiration under the following sections.
