10th edition of Kookeet in Bruges


For the last few years, Kookeet in Bruges has been the high point for foodies. Locals and visitors get to taste the wide range of Bruges’ top gastronomy in a convivial way. The tenth edition surprises with an innovative concept that goes back to basics and puts quality first. 5,000 visitors a day undergo a culinary trip of the senses in a green, beautiful location. Kookeet showcases the top quality of Bruges’s restaurants to Flanders, Belgium and far beyond. With 33 culinary chefs participating, it is an event not to be missed.


The gastronomic event will take place from September 24th to 26th. Three different tickets (site in Dutch only) are available and range from 10 EUR for general admission to 150 EUR for the VIP lunch or dinner.


Ghent Altar piece visitor center wins silver award


The visitor center ‘Lam Gods Sint-Baafs’ in St Bavo’s Cathedral in Ghent won a silver award last month at the presentation of the Museum + Heritage Awards in London – also known as ‘the Oscars of the museum sector’. The award is a wonderful international recognition for this special project that was coordinated by VISITFLANDERS and implemented in collaboration with the cathedral and other external partners.


Since March 2021, the Ghent Altar piece, the world renowned Renaissance painting by the Van Eyck brothers, can be admired in a new and immersive way in St Bavo’s Cathedral in Ghent.


Walking tour Herkenrode Abbey


VISITFLANDERS, the city of Hasselt and the Flemish National Trust inaugurated the new walking route at Herkenrode Abbey. The route offers visitors the chance to discover the whole monastic area for the first time. The walking route is 1.4 miles (2.2 km) long. At nine stops visitors can learn what makes the abbey site such a special place.


From Open Monument Day (11 September 2022) onwards, the English Park will also be fully accessible to visitors. Visit the Herkenrode Abbey website for more information on the abbey and the walking tour.


Tomorrowland 2022 edition


The world’s largest EDM Music festival is back. After a pandemic interruption, EDM music lovers and party goers can flock to Tomorrowland in Flanders for three weekends full of fun and dance beats. The festival will take place from July 15th – 31st on the weekend days only. Due to the immense popularity of the festival, what started out as a one weekend festival has now grown into three consecutive weekends.


Tickets to the festival sell out within minutes. But it is not to late too get waitlisted for any last-minute ticket opportunities or to plan ahead for the 2023 edition.
