Are you staying for a few days in Audenaerde and would you like to make a day trip to a city nearby? No problem, Audenaerde is the perfect base: stay at the Leopold Hotel Oudenaarde and go on a day trip to one of the surrounding cities. We have selected three of our favourite nearby cities.
At only half an hour by car you can find the lovely city of Ghent. Ghent, the capital of East Flanders, is famous for its historic city centre with beautiful buildings such as the Gravensteen or the 'three towers of Ghent'. On a sunny day you can enjoy a drink at the 'Graslei' while admiring the gorgeous houses and checking out the boats who are passing by. Don't forget to try the local specialties such as the 'neuzekes' or a 'Gentste Strop'.
A bit further from Audenaerde, at an hour drive, you will find the capital city of the province Antwerp called... Antwerp. Pay a visit to the world famous Antwerp harbour or go on a fun trip with the kids to the Antwerp ZOO. The city is the perfect family destination. Looking for inspiration for your Antwerp trip? What about some shopping at The Meir, some culture in the Cathedral of Our Lady or simply enjoy a bite to eat at the Grote Markt?
When taking the car in the direction of the Belgian coast you will pass by Bruges: the ideal tourist destination. Go on a boat tour in the 'Venice of the North', stroll around the idyllic streets or enjoy some real Belgian fries at the Belfry or at the Grote Markt. These are only a few suggestions of the many possibilities when visiting Bruges.
When coming back from your day trip to our hotel in Audenaerde you can enjoy a nice meal in our restaurant or end the evening with a drink in our bar.
