Tournai

In the southwestern part of Belgium lies the city of Tournai, whose medieval old town is now a tourist highlight of the region. The history of Tournai, one of the oldest cities in Belgium, dates back to the 5th century AD. So it is not surprising that in the heart of the city stands the oldest belfry in Belgium, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Tournai Guide

    The history of the local cathedral Notre-Dame de Tournai, which was built in the architectural style of the so-called Scheldt Gothic, dates back to the 12th century. Another architectural highlight of the Walloon city is the Halle aux Draps, originally built in the 13th century, which is now available for exhibitions and events in Tournai.

    About 70,000 inhabitants live in Tournai today, which is situated just under 90 kilometres south of Brussels. Historically, the city was an important centre of the textile trade, as the local Museum of Tapestry and Textile Art reminds us. Tournai also has an important art museum in Belgium, the Musée des Beaux-Arts, which exhibits works by Edouard Manet, Claude Monet and Georges Seurat.
