Bruges and Western Flanders

Preserved or reconstructed, there are few places in Northern Europe that offer such a visual and historical overload of fine medieval style architecture. Visit historic Bruges, Veurne and Damme or the World War I cemeteries which are carefully tended throughout the region. Battlefield tours, war museums and trench sites are to be found in special concentrations around Ypres, whose central square was meticulously rebuilt after the war.
