Eight villages in the outermost southern tip of West Flanders, at the south of Ieper, make up Heuvelland (free translation: 'Land of the hills'): De Klijte, Dranouter, Kemmel, Loker, Westouter, Wijtschate, Wulvergem and Nieuwkerke. The typical hilly character of the area makes Heuvelland a place of intense natural beauty. It is a succession of magnificent panoramic views, wooded slopes, nature reserves and broad farmlands. Small wonder it’s so calming to come here.

Heuvelland offers a variety of possibilities and surprising extras. Whether you’re the athletic type who wants to conquer one of our ‘mountains’, or you’re interested in the war past, or you just want to relax or go for a walk in a green environment: you’ll find it all in Heuvelland with enough to go around.

BAYERNWALD TRENCHES - FIRST WORLD WAR

In order to protect and preserve First World War heritage, the trench site Bayernwald has been restored and is open to the public since 2004:
300 metres of (German) trenches, 4 WWI German bunkers and 2 listening shafts.
The documentary Zero Hour (to be seen in the Tourist Office) is a good introduction before visiting the site.

COMMAND BUNKER - COLD WAR

At the beginning of the fifties of the previous century, Belgium, France, Great-Britain, Luxembourg and the Netherlands built a secret coordination bunker in Kemmel (Heuvelland) for the West-European air defence. The bunker has been one of the best kept secrets of the Belgian army for a very long period.
