Poperinge is a charming town in the southwest corner of the province of West Flanders, close to the French border. The town of 20,000 inhabitants is mostly known for its World War I heritage sites and captivating beer culture with many hop fields in the surrounding area. In the last years Poperinge also has developed itself as a regional hub for cycling and hiking. The municipality consists besides Poperinge of six other communities: Haringe, Krombeke, Proven, Reningelst, Roesbrugge and Watou.

Understand

During World War I the battleground was only a few kilometers to sometimes just a few hundred meters away from Poperinge. The town however never got captured by the Germans and functioned as a posting station for the allied army forces going to or from the Ypres Salient. English soldiers that recalled the town for its amusement and prostitutes, named the town affectionately as "Pops". The many cemeteries in the region are a somber reminder of the thousands of soldiers that died in the surrounding countryside.

World War I sites
  • Talbot House, Gasthuisstraat 43. Daily 10:00—17:30. Last entrance at 16:30. The ‘Every Man’s Club’ as Talbot House was called is one of the most evocative sites of the Great War. Over half a million soldiers were catered here. Everyone was treated equally as ranks did not matter here. Soldiers had the opportunity to play the piano, borrow books, to become human again. The exceptional spirit can possibly best be felt in the newly renovated 'Upper Room' or Chapel. This ‘Home away from Home’ makes a good way to look on the other side of World War I. €8, children till 6 years old go in for free. Combi-ticket Talbout House/Hopmuseum: €10. (updated May 2017)
  • Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery, Boescheepseweg 35A. Daily 9:00—18:00. This military cemetery is the prime witness of over four years of brutal fighting during World War I. Between 1915 and 1920 the hamlet of Lijssenthoek operated as the biggest evacuation hospital of the Ypres Salient. Next to the cemetery is a visitor center which provides a deeper understanding and impression of the history of the site. Free access. Wikipedia Icon (updated May 2017)
  • Gwalia Cemetery, Elverdingseweg 22. A hop farm was claimed by the British army forces and called Gwalia Farm after a place in Wales. A small hospital was installed here. 470 army members who did not survive are buried on a cemetery on a plat behind the farm. Free access. (updated May 2017)
  • Death Cells and Execution Spot, Guido Gezellestraat 1, +32 57 346676. The authentic execution pole which is situated in the inner courtyard of the town hall is a hurtful reminder of the fate that awaited so many so called 'deserters'. Soldiers, who sometimes bombarded for days, became near senseless and simply did not know what they were doing. Instead of receiving understanding and compassion, they served as a terrifying example to others. The condemned men spent their last night in the death cell before being shot at dawn on the courtyard. The site recently was renovated. Free. (updated Jun 2017)
  • Nine Elms British Cemetery, Helleketelweg. 1615 war victims are buried here, of which 1593 are killed during the First World War and about 20 victims and 2 unidentified losses from the Second World War. (updated Jun 2017)

  • St. Bertinus' church (Sint-Bertinuskerk), Garenstraat 1. Together with the St. John's church this one is very noticeable in the town of Poperinge. In the stained glasses of the church you can spot some local references, such as hops on the rood loft and depicted hop picking scenes. (updated Jun 2017)
  • Town Hall, Grote Markt 1. The Poperinge Town Hall was built in 1911 by the same architect who later would be responsible of the reconstruction of Ypres after the world war. (updated Jun 2017)
  • German Tower (Duitse Toren), Westvleterseweg. This 13m high German observation tower was built in 1940 during the Second World War as part of a military airfield (Fliegerhorst) just outside Poperinge. When the airfield closed in 1941 and became rural area again the tower fell out of use. Today the tower stands in the middle of the field and can only be seen from a short distance. (updated Jun 2017)
  • Weeuwhof, Sint-Annastraat. On the location of a former hop field on the assignment of a canon 12 houses for widows (called weeuwen in the local dialect) and old single ladies were built. Later the complex was extended by 6 additional houses. (updated Jun 2017)
  • Page Electronics, Casselstraat 210 (walk down the Casselstraat from the church), +32 57 346766. A local company assembling modern electronics, ranging from modules for spacecraft and aviation to prototypes for world famous research institute IMEC in Leuven Wikivoyage Icon.

Ypres (Dutch: Ieper, both pronounced "eeper") is a friendly town of 35,000 inhabitants in Flanders endowed with wonderful architecture and a troubled past. Ypres is best known as the site of three major battles of the First World War, the most famous being the Battle of Passchendaele from July - November 1917. The many memorials and cemeteries of the fallen in and around Ypres draw thousands of visitors each year. The belfry of Ypres is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Understand

The town of Ypres formed the centre of the so-called "Ypres Salient" during most of the First World War - an area of Allied (British and Belgian)-held land surrounded on three sides by the German front line that formed the northernmost section of the Western Front. Holding Ypres was vital for the Allies in their bid to prevent the Germans gaining control of all the Channel ports, vital for the transport and supply of the British Expeditionary Force. As a result, the city became the focus of several major battles to break in / out of the Salient and was subjected to fairly continuous bombardment by German artillery for most of the war. By 1918, little remained of the town but shattered ruins surrounded by muddy shell-pocked fields.

After the First World War, most of central Ypres was rebuilt with German reparations (war debt) money. This was a lengthy process: the famous Cloth Hall was not completed until the 1960s.

Landmarks and Memorials
  • Menin Gate Memorial. Dedicated on 24 July 1927 as a memorial to the missing British and Commonwealth soldiers who fell in Belgium during World War One. Has a Last Post Ceremony each night at 8:00 PM as a way for the Ypres citizens to express their gratitude towards those who died for Belgium's freedom. Wikipedia Icon
    • This memorial contains, both inside and out, huge panels into which are carved the names of the 54,896 officers and men of the British Empire forces who died in the Ypres Salient area and who have no known graves. The names recorded on the gate's panels are those of men who died in the area between the outbreak of the war in 1914 and 15 August 1917. The names of a further 34,984 of the missing - those who died between 16th August, 1917 and the end of the war, are recorded on carved panels at Tyne Cot Cemetery, on the slopes just below Passchendaele.
  • Cloth Hall - originally built around 1200 as a center of Flemish wealth, completely destroyed by German artillery shelling in 1916, the Cloth Hall was rebuilt, the project completing in 1962 and the symbol of a resurgent city. Contains the In Flanders Fields Museum.
    • In Flanders Fields Museum. Apr-Sept 10AM-6PM, Oct-Mar T-Su 10AM—5PM, last entry 1 hr before closing. Located in the Ypres Cloth Hall, right in the center. This museum gives an excellent overview of WWI. It is more like an experience that takes you right into the daily life during the war. The experience is very moving, and it's a must-see for everyone coming to Ypres, young and old. Allow at least 2h for a full museum visit. When the weather is good enough, the belfry tower is also available for visit for additional cost, giving you a great overview over the front region. adults €9, youths 18-25 yrs €4, children 7-18 yrs €1, under 7 free.
  • City fortification. Ypres has been a rather military city from its foundation on, being always on the boundary of some country. The oldest city walls, dating from 1385, were mostly destroyed for expansion. The city walls that are currently guarding the south and east of the city were created by the French architect Vauban in the 16th century. The walls are star-shaped, and made from thick dirt moats, allowing to hold back the heaviest artillery from that age to WWI onwards. Planted with trees, they form a green belt around the city centre. 
  • Casemates (Kazematten) (Just a bit south of the Menin gate, with entrances to the inner-city.). The Casemates were bomb-free shelters under the city fortifications. Also build by Vauban, and they even remained functional as armoury until WWI. Currently, they're brought back into use. One of them contains a pub, another one contains a brewery, and the rest is used for temporal expositions. 
  • Ramparts Cemetery, Rijselstraat. Military cemetery located within the town of Ypres with 198 Commonwealth burials next to the Lille Gate (Rijselpoort). 

Eat

The marketplace has several restaurants, pubs and places to sit outside during the summer.

Tuesdays usually host music night outside, organised by "'t Klein Stadhuis" right next to the cloth halls and the city hall.

Kortrijk (French: Courtrai, sometimes referred to in English as Courtray) is a city in Flanders, the northern part of Belgium. It is the capital and biggest city of the arrondissement of Kortrijk, which comprises some 284,581 inhabitants (1 January 2014). The wider municipality comprises the city of Kortrijk proper and the towns of Aalbeke, Bellegem, Bissegem, Heule, Kooigem, Marke, and Rollegem.

The city is situated on the Leie River, 42 km (26 miles) southwest of Ghent Wikivoyage Icon and 25 km (15 miles) northeast of Lille Wikivoyage Icon in France. Both Kortrijk and Lille are part of the same transnational Eurodistrict urban area with around 1,900,000 inhabitants.

As the biggest city of southern West Flanders, Kortrijk has many schools, a university, hospitals and shopping streets.

Understand

Kortrijk is a medium city, it has a good balance of tradition and innovation/modernism. It has always been famous for shopping, and in 2010 a big shopping centre was opened in the heart of the city. There are numerous traffic-free shopping zones, and lots historical sites in the city centre. Outside the centre there are some less developed hoods, but never really bad neighbourhoods.

Kortrijk is a rather safe city. Suburbs/satellite cities like Menen have to endure mainly burglary criminality from youth and gangsters, but Kortrijk is rather safe.
