A tradition in most of the northern countries. A rare sport activity in Flanders.. skating;
It as about 12 years ago that the canal was frozen and the ice was good enough to allow sporting
Equipment: A good pair of skates, bought or rented, and warm clothes
The Tourist Office of Damme proposes a lot of bicycle itineraries. Brocures and maps are for sale at moderated prices.
We went to Bruges by bike. Only 5 kilometres from Damme. We did it in 15 minutes.
I can advice everyone to visit Brugge by bike. It's a small city and very accesibly for bikes. If you want to see everything in one day, it's a great idea!
Equipment: We took our own bike and parked our car at the "Damse Vaart Zuid".
During high season it can be very crowded. There are also free parking lots in Damme Oost and Damme Zuid. (signposted)
Bikes are also for rent in town.
Buy a guide book and go cycling trough the polders of Flanders.
Equipment: You can rent a bike :
