Each district will be allocated its own colour and symbol.
This is how the posts will look:
• The top of the post will feature the colour, name and
symbol of the district in which you are located.
•
Underneath
you will see arrows that direct you to a
Tuighuisstraat
different district. The arrows depict the colour, name and
L. de Boningelaan
symbol of the district they direct you too. They will also
Tuighuisstraat indicate the average number of minutes needed to walk
to that particular district.
Ti h i t t
• Underneath you will see the arrows that direct you to the
places of interest in the district in which you are located.
• The Grote Markt and Tourism Kortrijk appear on each post.
• Major places of interest will also have an information
board providing more details about the building or
function.

Kortrijk needs new pedestrian
signage as a result of its
Sint-Jansplein
dynamic evolution and urban development.
The objective is
to welcome tourists in a trendy fashion and provide clear and
Leeuw unambiguous
van Vlaanderenlaansignage to places of interest. We show them
the best Kortrijk has to offer on the way to their destination.
Prinses Marie-Josepl.
Many attractions are within walking distance in Kortrijk, which
Jan Breydellaan
offers a great advantage,
but sometimes places of interest are
hidden or are difficult to find. Therefore the city centre will be
divided into 5 districts:

KORTRIJK’S TOP 10, 2015
28/11/14 09:22
Do you have a few hours to spare, and want to get
to know our city better and soak in a little culture?
We have lined up 10 amazing, not-to-be-missed
locations and activities for you.
01
03
The Béguinage site with
the experience centre, the
Artillery Tower, the Church
of Our Lady and the
Saint-Martin’s Church
Broel Towers
These medieval towers,
together with the Artillery
Tower, are all that remains of
the city’s old fortifications.
The southern ‘Speytorre’
was constructed in 1385 to
control traffic on the Leie.
The northerly ‘Inghelburghtorre’, dating back
to 1415, served as a
weapons depot. The Towers
are part of the distinctive
Kortrijk city silhouette.
The Kortrijk Saint Elisabeth Béguinage, founded in 1238, is a city
within a city, an oasis of peace and a UNESCO World Heritage site.
You can stroll past the small houses, the Gothic Saint Matthew’s
Chapel, with the oldest organ in the Low Countries, and the house
of the ‘Grand Dame’.
04
The Battle of the
Golden Spurs
06
Texture / Museum of
Flax and river Lys
Kortrijk 1302 tells the tale of the
most significant battle in the history
of Kortrijk, the Battle of the Golden
Spurs in 1302, in which an army of
Flemish peasants defeated a force of
heavily armed French cavalry. A little
further, on the Groeningekouter, you
will find the Groeninge Monument
where you can admire the statue of the Virgin of Flanders. She is
trying to restrain the Flemish Lion, which has broken free of its
shackles. The Groeninge Gate, from 1908, which bears the
inscription “1302 Groeningheveld”, leads
onto ‘t Plein, formerly
the training ground
of the 17th century
military.
08
02
The Grote Markt, the Belfry
and the City Hall
The Grote Markt in Kortrijk has
something to suit every taste.
Right in the middle of the square
is the Belfry (UNESCO World
Heritage Site), a remnant of
the medieval cloth hall. At the
top are the famous bell strikers
Manten and Kalle, and the spire
houses the 48-bell carillon.
The Grote Markt also features
the City Hall, in late Gothic
Renaissance style. The façade
features statues of the Counts of
Flanders. Inside, you will discover
the splendid aldermen’s hall and
council chamber with sculpted
mantelpieces. The Gothic hall
houses a modern mural on the
Battle of the Golden Spurs by
Jan van Imschoot.
‘Metamorphosis of the city’
city walk
The new city walk doesn’t just take you past the city’s historical
centre but also pays tribute to the metamorphosis that Kortrijk is
currently undergoing. There is a handy map including a brief
description of all the places of interest you encounter along the
way. You can download an audio version of the walk for your
smartphone from www.toerismekortrijk.be. It reveals some
interesting facts and amusing anecdotes. The route is indicated
by rivets on the ground.
The first bricks in the Church of Our Lady’s long history were laid
in the 13th century. In 1370, Count Lodewijk van Maele had the
Count’s Chapel built as his personal mausoleum. You will also find
a touch screen there that provides more details about the history
of the chapel, the stunning wall paintings of the Counts of Flanders
and the statue of Saint Catherine (a recognised masterpiece!).
Today the church contains a number of important treasures such
as ‘The Erection of the
Cross’ by Anthony Van
Dijck.
The banks of the Leie and
‘De Grote Verleieding’
De Grote Verleieding (the
big temptation), celebrations in Kortrijk and
throughout the region
following 20 years of works
on the Leie. The extensive
works have given Kortrijk
a facelift and the city now
boasts a widened Leie,
seven new bridges and
riverbanks with spacious
paths, delightful parks and
a renewed relationship with the water.
TEXTURE tells the story of the flax and linen industry. A story about
strong roots, about craftsmanship and entrepreneurship, about
daring innovations and constantly re-inventing oneself. In three
rooms, in an authentic flax depot (1912) on the banks of the river
Lys, you can learn about the
revolutionary development
created by the flax industry
in this region. The past will
surprise you, while the stories
of the present, will amaze and
inspire you. For centuries,
Flanders has been famous
for its textiles. A new industry
sprung up along the banks
of the Lys and went on to
conquer the world: flax
processing. ‘Courtrai flax’ soon
became renowned as the
best flax obtainable and still is
eagerly sought internationally.
Three rooms,
three stories
You use flax every
day, probably without
knowing it and at places
you would not expect it.
Designers, scientists
and entrepreneurs
leave no part of it unused. Discover, try, feel and test it all in
The cabinet of Curiosities. The Leie room brings to life the story
of flax processing in the Leie region. This story is one of mixed fortunes, of people who without outside assistance repeatedly found
the resilience to overcome major crises. It’s a fascinating history
with thinkers, darers and doers in the leading role. Beneath the
golden crown you will find the Treasure chamber. This is the place
to marvel at the beautiful damasks, laces, handwork and fine fabrics
07
The Saint-Martin’s
Church dates back to
the 12th century and
has been repeatedly
rebuilt and restored
over the centuries.
Inside you can find
precious works of art.
The church tower
houses Kortrijk’s first full
19th century carillon.

‘K in Kortrijk’ is the new and prestigious 34,000-m² shopping centre.
The complex puts Kortrijk back on the map as a pleasant shopping
town. K in Kortrijk sits alongside the city’s shopping streets. Here
you can find every kind of shop imaginable, from major chains to
unique boutiques. In short, shopping in Kortrijk has something for
everyone!
The seven newly designed bridges aim to further reinforce the
city’s own individual character. Each bridge is unique and can be
used to get one’s bearings. They are all suspended seven meters
above the surface of the water. The Westelijke Ringbridge, the
Dambridge, the Groeningebridge, the Collegebridge, the Noordbridge and the Budabridge have been completed while the Reep-
09
In the brand new Experience Centre in the Saint Anna Room
you will be immersed in many centuries of history in a remarkably dynamic manner. The Béguinage was inhabited by strong,
independent women, who were not bigots but feminists before
the term was even invented. Three ladies with character, all once
elected as the ‘Grand Dame’, whisk you off and provide you with
a glimpse into their world. You discover the elements of their
daily life, you see the Béguinage evolve and you can admire the
Béguinage’s treasures. An audio guide for use during your visit to
the Béguinage and the experience centre can be obtained from
the Visitor Centre, located just outside the gate.
The Artillery Tower is one of the few remains of the city’s medieval
fortress. This tower dates back
to the 14th century and was
originally used as a tower for
drinking water.
’ K in Kortrijk’ and
the shopping streets
’Occupied Kortrijk
between 1914 and 1918’
You can visit the ‘On
the Trail of a Spy’
exhibition in a wing
of the Kortrijk 1302
Museum. What happened in Kortrijk during
World War I? Located
within a single day’s
march from the front,
our city was an important point of supply for
the German troops. The
city was in the grip of regulations, requisitions and
billeting. Fighter pilots and bombers made the skies unsafe.
Privileged and less privileged citizens tell their stories. And a spy lurks
around every corner. You can also follow the WWI trail. You cycle
or walk past places that played a special role in The Great War. The
soldiers’ club (Soldatenheim), the pigeon prison, where confiscated
racing pigeons were locked up to prevent them from being used for
spying, an airfield complete with its bunker, the prisoner of war cells
that were secretly bugged... And you can use your tablet or
smartphone to play the exciting City Game about espionage.

Buda Island
Buda Island lies between the arms of the river Leie, offering
plenty for artistically-minded visitors to the city. This district of
Kortrijk includes such
distractions as the Buda
Tower; a platform for
artists of all sorts to do
what they do best. The
Budascoop cinema offers
the chance to enjoy the
best non-commercial films
and Broel 6 offers a varied
exhibition programme of
contemporary visual arts. In
the summer of 2015 it will
display the FLUX art trail.
In the Budapark, people of all
ages can relax in the beautiful
setting of the Leie river. In the
summer, the Buda park turns
into a beach with a sunbathing area. The Buda Factory
is an impressive venue where
designers, entrepreneurs,
artists, students and active
citizens work side-by-side. The
architectural firm of the Flemish
Government Architect Peter
Swinnen took charge of the old
building. A pentagonal section
was added along the streetside
to make the building’s façade more visible. The building’s 3,000
m² provides space for exhibitions, workshops and studios. There
is a prototype lab with 3D printers, laser cutters and lots of other
machines for creative people.
bridge is still in the design phase. Time for a celebratory project.
The Leie is the main artery of the Belgian art scene: literature,
architecture and painting. In this context the FLUX art trail unites
contemporary artists with amazing installations, intriguing photographs and new paintings. The artistic journey of discovery starts
on 4 July in Broel 6 and takes you past special places along the Leie.
De Grote Verleieding also focuses on the Leie’s numerous meta-
morphoses in Kortrijk and
the region.
Metamorfosen XL offers
residents and visitors an
insight into the historic
and future developments
in the Leie region: urban
development, green spaces,
industry and reconversion
and recreation etc.
