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.
Start off your visit on the 22nd (Sat): learn about all things military at Atlantikwall Raversyde, then kick back and relax at De Panne Beach, and then enjoy breathtaking views from Museum Aan de IJzer. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Market Square, get engrossed in the history at Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917, then make a trip to Tyne Cot Cemetery, and finally learn about all things military at Hooge Crater Museum.
