Across Flanders

During this barge holiday you can enjoy the most beautiful art cities of Flanders:  Brussels, Mechelen, Antwerp, Ghent and  Bruges are wonderful and interesting historical cities.  The daily guided bike tours will lead you through a variety of  beautiful flat landscapes and along the river Schelde. You will  also visit many picturesque small towns.  The largest Flemish “art cities”, like Brussels, Mechelen, Antwerp, Ghent and Bruges are showing their Flemish art treasures. You can make relaxing bike tours over old tow paths along small canals and rivers and via lanes with a lot of poplars to ancient villages, where beer is till being brewed like in grandfathers times. And when one tries this local village beer in a authentic pub or in an outside street café under the trees, the people approvingly raise their glass, especially when one arrives by bike.  Make a combination of beautiful cycling tours, various highlights and a very nice stay aboard your „floating hotel“.
