Book a weekend away to the beautiful Meetjesland region

Aalter is located in the Meetjesland, a rural and tourist region between the historic cities Bruges and Ghent. The north of the Meetjesland region is characterised by polders with many creeks and waterways. Centrally, and to the south, woods are one of the points of attraction. Together the canals, woods and creeks are the ideal setting for hikers and cyclists. Marked hiking and cycling trails and a cycling network of almost 800 km invite you to discover and explore the Meetjesland region.

Hotel Orchidee in the centre of Aalter has free bicycle parking. If you wish to make use of this service, please let us know when making your reservation. At a cycle shop at walking distance you can rent bikes for shorter or longer periods. At the reception we will be pleased to help you find a cycle map for the surrounding area. Junction 3 of the network is right around the corner: this is the closest starting point for your relaxing journeys.

In the summer months the market square with its many terraces is a real point of attraction.
