Good bus service, cycle paths and easy to walk around.
A quiet, friendly place just to meander taking in the architecture, parks, shops & bars.
Some nice shops, but not really a 'shoppers' paradise. Lovely town to walk round with lots of green space. Increasingly popular for foreign visitors seeking private Medical treatment at the large AZ Jan Portaels Hospital.
Good Chinese restaurants. Famous horse-steak restaurants.
Huge variety of beers/lagers
Campanile Hotel, right next to Station. Eurovolleycenter, short bus/taxi journey from station.
