Yet fully corseted walls, whether medieval or due to the awesome talent of Vauban, the town is nestled at the foot of the belfry, World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Local specialties like cheese Bergues, sausage or Bergues Potsch'vleech, sprinkled as it should be a good beer.

Very close to Bergues, is the discovery of Flanders, this flat country where the flower market towns with brick walls and huge churches of this land and canals criss watergangs, which paved with chapels or small bridges, sometimes even lead to a few mills or a few taverns ...
