Damme
The Essential
Interesting
A tiny town flanked by an unfinished canal, picturesque and wistful Damme is important in the history of Flemish literature: once the dynamic outer harbour of Bruges, it was the home of Jacob van Maerlant, one of the founders of Dutch prose, as well as the famous picaresque hero Till Eulenspiegel. A paradise for bookworms, with its bookshops and book market, the town is also renowned for its good food (sausage, eel and apple tart).
