Visit a brewery in the region

Cycling is not the only thing West Flanders has to offer. Beer lovers can enjoy themselves to their heart’s content as well. If you are looking to take a break from all that exhausting pedalling, then there are lots of local breweries to visit.

Must sees (more to come soon) ...

Brewery Sint-Bernardus

The St Berbanrdus brewery in Watou has been making dark and blonde Sint Bernardus abbey beer since 1946, using their own yeast and the hops from the adjacent hop garden. They give tours and of course let you taste their wonderful beer, but can you tell the difference between ‘just’ a Sint Bernardus and the world famous Westvleteren Trappist?

Brewery De Halve Maan

The only brewery in the centre of Bruges still in family hands, De Halve Maan gives you a tour of the facilities, finishing up with a tasting of their delicious beers Brugse Zot and Straffe Hendrik. Definitely don’t forget to ask about their beer pipeline! This world-first underground pipe of several kilometres long pumps the beer from the brewery inside the city to the bottling plant outside.

Brewery Rodenbach

Beer lovers cannot get past this one near Roeselare: the Rodenbach brewery which makes its red amber beer in a beautiful historical and protected setting! Definitely take a look in the museum about this very special beer and the Rodenbach family. And don't forget to taste!

WW-I-sites in the region

Tyne Cot

Cycling through West Flanders inevitably means coming across the remnants of the Great War. So don’t forget to visit some of the fascinating places that will give you a glimpse into what happened in this nook of Belgium a century ago.
