The capital of the West Flanders province is known as the Venice of the North due to its network of canals. There's a fairytale quality to the city, with its cobbled, medieval streets and chocolate-box architecture, exemplified by the picturesque Markt which you will find in the heart of the city. We’ll take you to a workshop where lace is made – here you’ll be able to watch the craftsmen and women at work and learn about the history of embroidery in Belgium. We’ll also take you on a sightseeing cruise along the canals to give you a different perspective on the city. For a real insider experience, spend an evening with gregarious Marc Nyssen at his 18th century farmstead in nearby rural Damme. Relax at his large wooden table and enjoy a delicious meal of farm-reared beef and piquant apple pie, as Marc regales you with tales of his family's five generations of farming in the district.
