Discover Ypres and the Flanders Fields Museum
In the morning, our guide will lead you past the main war memorials of Ypres: the moving Menin Gate, the Irish Cross and the atmospheric Saint George's Memorial.
After a delicious lunch we visit "In Flanders Field Museum" which - now that the last witnesses have also died - is more than ever the gateway to the First World War in Flanders.

In Flanders fields
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
- Major John McCrae – 1915
