The region of Flanders lies between France, Germany and The Netherlands, with an assortment of easily accessible cosmopolitan cities offering visitors much more than just traditional Flemish main squares, historical architecture, exquisite chocolate and amazing beer.
Flanders is the combination of the people, their environment and their history. A mixture of knowledge, no-nonsense behavior and non-conformity tempered with ingenuity and innovation. Flanders is at the crossroads of northern and soutern Europe, in between East and West, breathing in influences and creativity from all over the world. It offers century`s worth of cultural heritage gems in the fine arts and architecture as well as cutting edge art, fashion, design and contemporary gastronomy.
Flanders takes pride in its excellent cuisine and fearless chefs, transcending the usual/internationally known sprouts, mussels, fries, mayonnaise, chocolate desserts and - eight hudred different brands and counting - beer.
Antwerp, just one of Flanders` majestic arts cities, was the proud host of the IGLTA International Convention in 2010. We hope to welcome you soon! For more information visit www.visitflanders.us
