Flanders Heritage Venues 2.0

Are you looking for a heritage venue or a venue with a unique impact? Toerisme Vlaanderen is supporting and developing a special network of venues at heritage sites under the name 'Flanders Heritage Venues 2.0'. These locations successfully passed a thorough quality audit and were evaluated on criteria such as sustainability, experience, accessibility, digitalisation and well-being. Sustainability and Toerisme Vlaanderen's 'Travel to Tomorrow' strategy were also important criteria when selecting these venues.
