Lots to see and do on Heritage Day Flanders

The second Sunday in September is traditionally Heritage Day in Flanders. The first Heritage Day Flanders took place in 1989 and since then it has become something of a tradition. Those looking for an interesting and often unusual Sunday out can find what they are looking for on Heritage Day Flanders.    

The annual event generates huge interest each year from the public and media alike. The recipe for Heritage Day remains highly successful: hundreds of heritage sites throughout Flanders are open to visitors, free of charge, on the 2nd Sunday of September.

As well as place to visit walks and cycle rides are also taking place as part of the Heritage Day.

Wherever you are in Flanders you are sure to find an Heritage Day event near to you thanks to this interactive map on the website of the Herritage Day’s organisers Herita.  

Heritage Day “For young and old”

Herita aim is to interest everyone, young and old, in Flemish heritage. Heritage tell us much about our past and in so doing help us better understand the present.

The organisation strives to ensure that we can all enjoy the numerous heritage sites both now and in the future. The annual Heritage Day is the year’s biggest celebration of Flemish heritage. However, Herita strives to promote interest in heritage not only on Heritage Day, but throughout the year.
