Bruges is also a veritable open-air museum. Its religious monuments are also among the attractions hidden by the city. Bruges is located near the North Sea.

Since 2009, the Agency for Nature and Forest has owned or managed 140 ha of the Preshoekbos and is working hard to expand. This pleasant tour gives a nice chance to explore this region and takes the hiker to the most beautiful corners of the green spaces around the municipalities of Lauwe, Marke and Aalbeke. A combination of church paths, country lanes, forest paths, a piece of towpath along the Leie and asphalt make up this beautiful walk.Show more

easyGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray StarGray Star
Length: 9 mi • Est. 3 h 49 m
This route leaves from Blankenberge and is a four-star trip through forest, beach, sea and dunes. The shell road (schelpenwegje) that runs from Blankenberge to Wenduine is only accessible to pedestrians, which makes it pleasant to walk. It is a wonderful walk through the dunes but please know that the soft sand makes walking more difficult. The return trip along the coastline is beautiful.Show more
