historical city with many pubs & restaurants
In a nutshell
it's a nice flemisch city!
The Schouwburg or better "Cultuur Centrum Kortrijk" is the local theater.
The theater was build between 1912 and 1920 in a Flamish post-Renaissance style and was designed by architect Jan Robert Vanhoenacker.
The main theather can house 800 visitors. There are smaller halls in the building, like the ballet hall, the arenatheater and the basement galery.
In 1968 the building was remodelled, distorting the original character of the building. Luckely this was restored by the 2000 restauration. At the same time the Alberola glass roof was added.

Address: Schouwburgplein 14 - 8500 Kortrijk
The Kortrijk tourist info center is well-designed but not much enthusiasm from the staff. Very perfuctory. Map and a few hand gestures and that's about it! I even lost my own enthusiasm to visit the Flax Museum which is a bit out of the center city (take bus 13 at the rail station). The center is located in the Bejinhofpark.

Miscellaneous: As the title suggests a guide to the beers brewed i Belgium and good places to try them. In Kortrijk it took us to "De Klokke" on Grotemarkt and not disapointed.
The book is written by Tim Webb and is available from Camra in the UK.
