& THE RODENBACH TOUR
Enjoy this popular 4 day, 3 night break to the beautiful city of Bruges incorporating the popular Rodenbach Run organised by the BAR Classic Car Club. Belgium is without doubt one of Europe's most underrated destinations. It is known for its medieval towns and renaissance architecture and as the headquarters of the European Union and NATO.
During this 4 day break, you'll enjoy a weekend of activities starting with a welcome dinner on the Friday night. Saturday is at leisure to enjoy the beautiful city of Bruges. On Sunday, you'll be joined by other Belgian car enthusiasts on an organised run.
Starting in Bruges, you'll enjoy the organised Rodenbach Tour with a lunch stop before returning to Bruges in the afternoon. On Monday, you'll have the opportunity to visit and explore the WWI battlefields and the town of Ypres before returning to Calais.
Bruges, or Brugge as it is called in Flemish, is possibly the most photogenic city in the world. Summer or winter, wherever you look you see scenes from postcards. With its charming medieval step-roofed houses and imposing churches reflected in the still waters of the canals, it's almost too picturesque to be real. The historic centre is quite small and contained within a ring of canals, so it's very walkable and easy to just wander through the narrow streets and market squares, exploring the town.
Belgium may be a small country, but is big on culture. The country is a melting pot of European influences with the Dutch-speaking Flanders to the north, French-speaking Wallonia to the south and a German-speaking community to the east. Bruges, known as the “Venice of the North”, is a well-preserved city where the entire historic centre has been recognized as a UNESCO world heritage site. The attractions of this enchanting city include a wide range of museums, churches, historical buildings, canals and streets. All of which can be explored by boat, foot or horse and carriage.
