Aalst : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Aalst lies on the banks of the Dender, halfway between Brussels and Ghent. It once played a leading role in the struggle for textile workers to assert their rights and is presently a commercial and financial centre. This hop-growing area has nurtured the founding of major breweries. Moreover, since the opening, in 1988, of the Werf arts centre (exhibitions, concerts, dance or theatre performances), Aalst also has a fine cultural card to play.
