Sint-Laureins has not a very rich cultural heritage, except for the legendary Godshuis and the churches of the five boroughs. In the area you will find many old farms and here and there an old chapel, all having their own story to tell. Recommended is the five-village route, a mapped cycle tour that leads you through the five boroughs and brings you to all places of interest. We can give you any additional information about what can be seen in Sint-Laureins and surroundings, or you can consult our local tourist office.
Sint-Laureins and the surrounding area played an important role at the end of WWII. Canadians have faced a serious battle here. More on this combat is to be found at the Canada museum, founded in honor of the liberators.
If you are an art and culture lover, the Zente holiday home is still the place to be! The beautiful medieval cities of Ghent and Bruges, as well as the mundane seaside resort Knokke-Heist with adjacent nature reserve Het Zwin, are within a radius of only 25 km. Besides, the picturesque towns of Damme and Sluis are only 15 km away. All these cities and villages are definitely worth a day trip. In the vicinity of Sint-Laureins there are also some smaller gems to discover, such as Retranchement or Sint-Anna-Ter-Muiden (formerly Mude).
