Veurne may be modest in size, but its role in World War I was anything but.
During that Great War, Veurne was even the capital of Belgium for quite a long time. Moreover, the Grote Markt with its series of historic buildings is one of the country's most beautiful squares and you will find De Moeren nearby.
A unique landscape, 4 metres below sea level. The sea is never far away, so you can easily combine two attractions.

DAY AT SEA
Leaning against the Westhoek is the West Coast. And so the Westhoek has its own beach. Each coastal municipality may be unique. They share that charming Westhoek feeling.
At 10 km, with its seaside resorts
(De Panne - Koksijde - Oostduinkerke),
its vast nature reserves and its wide sandy beaches.
The border between Flanders and France is just a bit more blurred in the Westhoek than in other regions. It seems as if French Flanders and the Westhoek want to stay intertwined forever. French and Flemish are swapped smoothly and everyone hops from one side to the other.
Authenticity is a key concept in this warm northern French region. You can see it in the many heritage museums in the picturesque villages and the beautifully restored farmhouses amid the vast fields.
High time to explore French Flanders yourself!
