Travel Tips for Diksmuide

Man in the moon

by tompt

’t Manneke uit de Mane (the man in the moon) is the almanac for Flanders since 1881. The first World War stopped the publishing of the books. And after the war there were not enough people to start again.
It took several people and several attempts but eventually it resurfaced. It became very populair and on the marketsquare in Diksmuide you can find a statue of the man in the moon.

The church after the war

by tompt

Just to give an impression, this is how the church (and the rest of Diksmuide) looked like after four years of heavy fighting in the Great War. (1914-1918)
From this rubble they built the city to a jewel in west flanders.

The beguinage in Diksmuide dates back to the 13rd century. Untill 1914 when the Great War started and devastated Diksmuide the last beguine left to never return. The Beguinage is rebuilt in old style, as is most of the historical centre of Diksmuide after the war ended in 1918.
