West Flanders 2

Two regions in West Flanders have been involved in Sintropher - the Westhoek region in the west (see separate tab) and the Bruges-Zeebrugge corridor in the east.

The Bruges-Zeebrugge corridor is in eastern West Flanders. On the coast the major port of Zeebrugge serves both passenger and freight, and continues to expand. Inland, the historic city of Bruges is a major tourist attraction and regional city hub for this part of West Flanders. They are connected by road and canal links plus a rail line.
