Flanders is situated right in the middle of the beating heart of Western Europe. It is a crossroads of people, trade and culture that is home to a dense network of roads, waterways and railways, public transport and world-renowned ports.
Brussels, cradle of the European institutions, is also the capital of Belgium and of Flanders itself. London, Amsterdam, the Ruhr Area and Paris are all situated within a mere 350 km.
To assume its role as the gateway to Europe, Flanders has a broad range of cast-iron strong suits:
- hypermodern seaports
- cutting-edge logistics
- fast links by road, rail and inland waterway
- and one national and three regional airports
