Route name: Nieupoort - Kortrijk
Duration: Two weeks
Cruise type: Return
Route description: Starting from the pleasant seaside town of Nieuwpoort, cruise along the peaceful waterways of East Flanders to the bustling port of Ostend and then on to the beautiful city of Bruges, which with its medieval buildings, narrow cobbled streets and pretty canals, more than deserves its title of “Venice of the North”. From here continue to Gent, home to some magnificent early Flemish buildings, fine museums, excellent restaurants and superb shopping. Cruise on via the lovely town of Deinze to Kortrijk, once a centre for linen production. Don’t miss the imposing Broel Towers sitting on either side of a bridge across the River Lys.
