Book Now

For four gruelling years from 1914, the city of Ypres was shelled and reduced to ruins. Some 500,000 soldiers died in the ongoing 'Ypres Salient,' evident in the 170 cemeteries that sweep the city's surroundings.

Since the last bomb fell on October 14th however, Ypres has been sensitively re-built and after many years of work, is now restored to its original medieval beauty, down to its centrepiece Cloth Hall. Ypres is a charming city for you to discover.

 

The memory of the Great War is kept alive in one of the museums or on the historic sites. Choose to visit The Flanders Fields Museum in the beautiful Cloth Hall, the grandest building in Ypres. The medieval character of Ypres can be experienced in the cosy centre or on the Vauban Ramparts, the best preserved in the country. Although it was completely destroyed during the war, the Ypres Market Square was completely restored and is now one of the most beautiful market squares in Belgium.

 

You can have a drink on one of the many terraces and just enjoy your view on historical Ypres or visit the many beautiful buildings reflecting Ypres' glorious past, or maybe enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants.

 

In the evening, you have the choice of going to Menin Gate for the Last Post ceremony which takes place at 8pm.
