Get in[edit]

Get around[edit]

The city center and ramparts are easily navigated on foot. Twenty minutes takes you straight across town.


  • The old Beguinage, beautifully restored, now with some art shops open in Summer.
  • The main church, a beautiful example of "Demer Gothic", the "Demer" being the local small river.


Go swimming at "Halve Maan" provincial open air swimming pool. A wonderful place to wile away a sunny afternoon in this lazy town.

Walk the old city ramparts, a very green belt around the city. It easily connects into the surrounding countryside.

Take a parachuting class in the nearby (4 km) Schaffen airport, which doubles as training grounds for the Belgian paratroop regiment.
