A quaint little village in West Flanders, Belgium. A nice day out when staying in Bruges.


Don't miss the green flatlands and canals around Damme. They are so typical for that area.

    A lovely spot -- looks less frequented than Brugge -- it's on my list now:)

    :-) prachtige pagina!!! I back up Myriam and you about the terrible traffic. There are lots of alternatives! and I do love the pancakes too! one of the reason for a deviation to Damme when I am around Bruges `-)

    You're so right about your 'tourist trap' tip! Especially on a Friday afternoon ...

    Damme - gate to Bruges - you made it an inviting page Helga. The statue in front of the church is called "Blik van Licht" made by Charles Delporte - he has a museum in Damme !

    I remember making a trip to Damme, it was nice and so were the pancakes that we had there, along with an Oude Gueze beer Mmmm :-) Oh yes, we went on that boat too. No books when we visited though.
