Holidays to Flanders

Explore charming cities, discover nature and enjoy the sun and the beach in this mostly Dutch-speaking part of Belgium.

Enjoy a varied holiday in Flanders full of culture, nature and the beach. The region is full of charming towns such as Bruges and Ghent and Antwerp, the city of shopping.

Today, Belgium consists of the primarily Dutch-speaking Flanders and the more Francophone Wallonia, but in the 19th century, French was the most widely spoken language. The Flemish Movement, a political movement for greater autonomy of the Belgian region of Flanders and the protection of the Dutch language, changed that. Today, both Dutch and French are spoken in Flanders.

Flanders is a very diverse region that has something for everyone. Go to the beach at Knokke-Heist or visit Fort Napoleon in Oostende. Nature lovers will enjoy nature reserve Het Zwin in the far northwest of the province.


The province is also home to great cities, such as Antwerp and Ghent, a vibrant partly-pedestrianised city full of narrow allies, waterways and beautiful facades. Take a look inside Sint-Baafskathedraal, home to 'The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb', or Castle Gravensteen. The charming town of Bruges, with its waterways, bridges and impressive belfry is also a must-see.


And you cannot leave Flanders without going to Brussels! Although the city is geographically located in Flanders and is officially bilingual, French is more widely spoken. Visit the impressive Galleries Royales Saint Hubert for a day of upmarket shopping or enjoy a cool beer at Grote Markt. Take the kids to see Manneken Pis and then to the Comic Strip Centre for some fun.

Discover Flanders by car, bicycle or on foot. You can take the train between the big cities, which is great if you’re not travelling by car or don't want to drive. The seaside towns are all connected by the Flemish coast tram (kusttram).

You can reach Flanders by car, train or airplane. The journey from England will take you anywhere between 1.5 and 4.5 hours depending on the city you will be visiting. 

Book your trip to Flanders and discover the charm and diversity of this great region. You're bound to love it!

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Flemish Region?

A: Like most thriving cities, Brussels and Antwerp can be explored using ride-share services or public transportation.
