Peter Paul Rubens, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Jan van Eyck... For over 250 years, from the 15 th to long
into the 17 th century, Flanders was a figurehead for fine arts in Western Europe and the source of
inspiration for well-known art movements of the time, such as the Baroque, Renaissance and the
Flemish primitives. Many works by these Flemish Masters can be admired all over the world,
although our Flemish Masters are best experienced in the place they were created, in the unique
setting of Flanders.

The guides on this website are characters that can be found in the works of our Flemish Masters.
Choose your particular area of interest and let them guide you through our destination. We hope to
welcome you soon in Flanders.
