We start our day by taking the coastal tram from Ostende to Nieuwpoort.
Our cycling tour start at the famous King Albert’s monument (West Front Museum). We cycle along the Yser river up to Diksmuide and the mighty Ijzertoren (No more War!). In Diksmuide we have our lunch stop and see the Trench of Death (optional paying visit). Next we cycle to Sint Sixtus Abbey where the world famous Westfleteren beer is produced. The Abbey-brewery is not open for visitors, but you feel the special vibes all around and of course, we will taste the exclusive beer and cheeses in the monastery pub.
Finally we cycle to Ypres, not before having stopped at Essex Farm cemetery where John Mc Crae wrote his world famous poem ‘In Flanders Fields’.
