The River Lys runs through Kortrijk (Courtrai in French), a surprising city that has historical links with flax and linen. Stroll about to see the town's many architetural surprises, from historical buildings to innovative contemporary creations, reflecting its dynamism. The centre is car-free and has lively and attractively renovated shopping streets. The belfry has two famous bellstrikers, Manten and Kalle, and its chimes reach as far as the begijnhof, one of the most charming in Belgium.
