Steven Vandenbussche, Curator of the Memorial Museum Passchendaele, describes his favourite locations in Belgium. There’s something for everyone here: a restaurant, two great museums, a country walk, a cycle route and a family fun park. Oh and then you can round it all off with a trip to Steven’s favourite whiskey bar! Cheers!
I don’t usually do city trips, but thought I would take a break from walking and cycling to spend some time in the beautiful city of Gent. Here are some ideas to make the most of a day there. It includes brunch, a walking tour, lunch, a castle visit, and plenty of churches!
The MMP17 is a museum dedicated to the horrendous bloodbath that was the Battle of Passchendaele. It displays numerous artefacts from the battle, a Dugout Experience that takes you underground into a mock-up of the British Army’s quarters, and reconstructions of trenches.
