De Haan Things to Do: 15 reviews and 15 photos

  The Center of De Haan, just off the beach
by DrewV

Designed as a turn of the century escape for Brussels' and Antwerp's wealthy and fashionable, De Haan glows with the balconies and bright colours of the period. From an architectural perspective, De Haan forms a crucial link in the Flanders saga. It stands as a terrific counterpoint to the medieval art cities of Brugge and Gent or the Art Nouveau facades of Brussels and Antwerp.

Plus, it looks swell. And the beer is good.
