Discover the historic city centre of Kortrijk and its ancient beersecrets during this three-hour beer walk and beer tasting experience. Five beer tasting sessions and a unique food pairing are included in the price. This beer tour is a perfect way to explore the beguinage, de Groeningekouter (the Battle of the Golden Spurs) and the old borders on the river Leie (Lys) as cultural heritage. Did you know Kortrijk was in it’s golden days the most beer-penetrated of all Belgian cities with a homebrewery for each six families? Anyone who takes part can decide, at any time during the BeerWalk tour, to have one or more beer tastings replaced by a soda of your choice. This way anyone can enjoy the beer stories and the town visit.
The Kortrijk BeerWalk is an initiative supported by Tourism Kortrijk and Brewery Omer Vander Ghinste, known for his unique range of flavourished beers.
