The Heritage route to Dendermonde

We find ourselves in the lovely country of the Scheldt in Eastern Flanders. The Open churches Foundation has devised a cycle tour starting from Dendermonde. It will lead you to churches and chapels with astonishing religious histories.

Religious Heritage around Dendermonde and Buggenhout.
Cycle tour”Heerlijke kerken en kapellen” (Delightful churches and chapels) (34.5kms)

On this tour we will highlight the influence of the mediaeval lords to whom we owe the existence of the churches and chapels and on their role in protecting various religious institutions. It is the region of the powerful lords of Dendermonde. Who were also lords in the area of Dendermonde- Buggenhout? The Abbey beers. You can also enjoy the blond beer of Dendermonde. Buggenhout is the home of the well known “Triple Carmelite” beer.
