Kortrijk

 

This beautiful historical city in West-flanders, that once was the cradle of the flax and textile industry, has become a trendy hotspot merging historical and modern architecture seamlessly.  Apart from the main sights to see, the broeltorens, the begijnhof,  the great market and the two main churches ( St- Maartenskerk & Onze lieve Vrouwe kerk ), this small city is making a name for itself thanks to a big number of upcoming bars and restaurants you simply can’t miss out on.

 

Kortrijk is also a big name in the interior design world, hosting it’s biannual interior expo, biennale interieur, in oktober.

A good time to visit is  the weekend of 21 may when the city is filled with performances of music groups and dj’s by night, and family activities, including parades, street dance and an enormous flea market throughout the whole city, during daytime. This annual ensemble of fun, is also called the sinksenfeesten.
