Soak in late medieval charm of Flanders with Cox & Kings

March 17th 2017, Mumbai: Cox and Kings, the leading holidays and education travel group with operations in 22 countries, offers packages to Flanders that are mishmash of modern, romantic, fashionable and old world charm. Flanders is a rich and lively cluster of cities in Belgium, made up of Antwerp, Brussels, Bruges, Ghent, Leuven and Mechelen. The most important Flemish cities of late medieval times are still the most important cities of Flanders.

The rich history of the region is revealed through Flemish art and medieval architecture, sometimes, right in the middle of its busy, bustling cities. Foodies can gorge on local specialties like moules frittes (mussels and fries), delicious waffles or sinful chocolates, or enjoy the Trappist beers. Also find the best in world cuisine at some of the Michelin-starred gourmet restaurants. Flanders is also a shopper's paradise- be it delicate lace, quirky artefacts, wonderful antiques or edgy fashion.

The key attractions in each city are as below-
