My name is Jacob Butt, I live in Waregem and study in Kortrijk. Although I
really like Waregem, there are some interesting places in Kortrijk to relax as
well. This is my top 5:
1. Kaffee Renée
- Kaffee Renée is a very cosy coffee shop. There is a lot of coffee to be found
but other drinks are present as well. Along with coffee goes their cake/pie.
They have a lot of different options to choose from. All those I tasted were
very good. There's an inside as well as an outside. Kaffee Renée is located in
the heart of Kortrijk, right in the middle of the shopping street.
2. Verlaagde leieboorden
This is a brand new attraction in Kortrijk. I like to sit at the 'verlaagde
leieboorden' because it's really calm and it's a nice place to meet up with
friends and have a drink. They are also located in the center of Kortrijk.
3. Paul's Boutique
If you're hungry but you're on a budget, try Paul's Boutique! It's a burger
restaurant that sells delicious burgers for a low price (€5- €10). You're belly
will certainly be filled with one of these burgers.
4. De Gavers
The first location that is not in the center of Kortrijk but certainly
worthwhile. De gavers is a recreation area where you can walk, run, bike, swim,
sail, surf and many more. Most of these things are free. It's a 20 minute bike
ride from the center of Kortrijk. What I like about "De Gavers" is
that there is a lot of nature, a thing not seen very much in Flanders.
If you're looking for a fun night, definitely go to Straatje. This is the
place where a lot of young people go out. Straatje is essentially a street with
bars in. I would certainly recommend it.
Thank you for reading this article. I hope you have a fun time in Kortrijk!
