Ypres : a city to experience, discover and enjoy

Previously ...

Ypres is a city with a very rich and varied past. During the Middle Ages Ypres was a flourishing trading centre. In those days Ypres was one of the main Flemish cloth centres next to Bruges and Ghent. During the First World War the charming town was reduced to a heap of rubble.  Ypres was almost entirely destroyed by four years of senseless violence. The citizens of Ypres rebuilt their city with respect for the past.


Ypres is a charming city for you to discover. The memory of the Great War is kept alive in one of the museums or on the historic sites. The medieval  character of Ypres can be experienced in the cosy centre or on the ramparts. Ypres has all facilities to accommodate each one of you.  

Let us inspire you with a visit to our website or by our brochure Ypres 2016

We welcome you every day in the Visitors Centre for Ypres and the Westhoek, located in the western wing of the Cloth Hall. There you will discover the many assets of Ypres, Flanders Fields and French Flanders, over the border. We have a large museumshop and museumcafé. Here you make the ideal start for a journey through Ypres and the region. 

This weekend the 'Ypres Rally' is taking place in Ieper. This European Rally attracts every year a lot of spectators. The towncentre will be difficult to access on Thursday and will be closed off for traffic on Friday and Saturday. 

The In Flanders Fields Museum and Tourist Office will be open and accessible in the Cloth Hall. We advise to use the parkings on the outskirts of the town, which are free and only on a maximum 15 minutes walk of the Grote Markt  http://www.toerismeieper.be/images/filelib/parkeerzonesIeperaangepast_1843.pdf
