Boasting remnants from the Middle Ages, the ancient city of Ieper in West Flanders offers attractions that are as historically significant as Ghent and Bruges, but with fewer crowds.
Essex Farm Cemetery and Lest We Forget Battlefield Tours (Flanders) will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bedford House Cemetery and Hooge Crater museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Ieper (Ypres): Mons (Collegiale Sainte-Waudru & St Symphorien Military Cemetery), Flanders Field American Cemetery (in Waregem) and Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul (in Ostend). There's lots more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Ramparts Cemetery, take in the history at Battle of Polygon Wood, appreciate the extensive heritage of Begijnhof, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Martin's Cathedral.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Brussels Airport, Ostend-Bruges International Airport and Antwerp International Airport (Deurne). Expect a daytime high around 19°C in May, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
