Kortrijk : Michelin's recommendations
Kortrijk, crossed by the River Lys, at the heart of an industrial area, is a dynamic business centre nicknamed the "Texas of Flanders". Visitors can enjoy strolling along its attractive pedestrian streets. The talented painter of flowers and landscapes with animals Roland Savery (16C-17C) was born here. His art is similar to that of Velvet Brueghel.
