The Coastal Towns
A visit to the small coastal towns of Flanders will be an unforgettable highlight to your visit in Belgium. Scars and souvenirs of the Great War remain poignant attractions in the surrounding countryside, which also grows hops for some of Belgium’s trademark beers.
Belgian chansonnier Jacques Brel described it as “Le Plat Pays”, “The flat country with Cathedrals as the only mountains beneath skies, so low that the canals get lost in them.” Even blanketed in fog or howling February gales, the canals have a mesmerizing charm.
Damme was featured in the film ‘The Girl with a Pearl Earring’.
