Autumn is the perfect season for nice walks along the Ijzer-river and the beach. Starting in Nieuwpoort, you can discover the beautiful hinterland: green meadows crossed by little rivers. Walking or cycling is the best way to explore the beautiful area.
Use Hotel Uilenspiegel as your base for your cycling holiday at the Belgian coast. Nieuwpoort and the surrounding low lands feature several unique bike trails. All trails are clearly signposted. You can rent bikes in Nieuwpoort, at only 100 meters from the hotel or you can bring your own bikes.
During the 100 year commemoration of the First World War, tourism in Flanders Fields is very popular. In Nieuwpoort you can visit the Albertmonument and the Ganzenpoot (Goose foot), the locks which were used to fload the low lands behind Nieuwpoort to stop the advance of the German soldiers.
