Very beautiful town full of history and historic places. Some lovely chocolate shops. Didn't go to the museum but the town itself has lots of character. Would visit again for a longer look round.

Fantastic building, with beautiful medieval aesthetics - not dissimilar, from some of the architecture which can be seen in the Markt in Bruges. Parking is available in the main square (Grote Markt) of Veurne, nearby the building, and it is free, but - please note...More
