Tour de l'Yser
This 84m-tall tower is a memorial to the heroes of the Battle of the Yser on the river's opposite bank. It bears the letters A.V.V.-V.V.K., which stand for the motto: "All for Flanders, Flanders for Christ". The panoramic view from the top takes in the Flanders plain and Dixmuide; on a clear day you can even see the belfries of Bruges, Ostend and Nieuwpoort, as well as the Flanders hills (viewpoint indicator). The museum on the first floor recalls the battle.
