Some local landmarks, such as Kasteel Rooiveld, can trace their origins to the 1500s.

This sprawling museum is housed in a medieval-era building, with an impressive collection of works that date back to the 15th century. Other essential art attractions include the Groeninge Museum, which includes works from Jan van Eyck, Jan Provoost and many other Flemish masters.

This part of Flanders isn't short on mouth-watering delicacies. You'll want to indulge a sweet tooth with Belgian fries and waffles, but the more discerning foodie will enjoy veggie-friendly options like braised chicory and Belgian endive.

Driving in Oostkamp

Exploring everything that Flanders has to offer is easy when you choose car hire in Oostkamp. The N50 provides a convenient route into the heart of the city, with hassle-free connections to central Bruges and nearby places like Jabbeke, Zedelgem and Beernem. European route E40 runs just south of the city itself, connecting you to destinations further afield, like France and Belgium. If you are planning on crossing the border, remember that different speed limits apply. While speed limits in Belgium are the same as in the Netherlands, they're typically higher in neighboring Germany.

Driving in Oostkamp can take some getting used to. If it's your first time in the country, remember that motorists drive on the right-hand side of the road here. You'll also need to plan your journeys around congestion. The central parts of Oostkamp and Bruges both become heavily congested during commuting hours. If you can help it, avoid taking to the road between 07:00 and 09:00 and 16:00 to 19:00. You'll also encounter many one-way systems when driving in the center of town. As such, it makes sense to plan your journey route ahead of time to avoid any unnecessary delays.

Oostkamp parking is plentiful, but you might struggle to find on-street parking that doesn't charge a premium. Although many areas offer free parking for up to two hours, you'll need to be careful not to overstay your welcome and incur a fine. If you're booking a hotel stay in Oostkamp, check with your accommodation provider to see if free parking is included. As with other countries, yellow lines are used to flag any areas where parking is prohibited. In nearby Bruges, parking is far more generous. Centrum Station offers 1,500 parking spots.
