A romantic break in the Flemish Ardennes

With Christmas a distant memory and summer approaching slowly, it’s time to start planning for the most romantic day of the year. What can you do to make this Valentines more special for the person you love? Aside from the usual flowers and chocolates – which is always a winner – why not plan a romantic trip to Oudenaarde and discover our fantastic city together. Romance is in the air in February with lots of fun activities for couples. Book Your stay in Leopold Hotel Oudenaarde to guarantee a stylish, luxurious place to stay for your trip. Here are some couple’s activities to enjoy your romantic trip in the Flemish Ardennes

Cycle Tour

If you’re an active couple, what could be better than exploring a new place on two wheels. The scenery in the Flemish Ardennes is next to none and is ideal for an adventurous day out together. The area has over 100 routes to choose from, from rocky climbs to steep descents. Enjoy a challenging but enjoyable ride, with forests, rough terrain and steep hills making it a favourite with mountain bikers across Europe. Don’t worry about travelling with a bike, there are plenty of bike hire spots around the city and our informative blog will show you the best routes for beginners, intermediate and advanced riders. 

Romantic spots in Oudenaarde

Oudenaarde is an ideal place for couples to explore history, beauty and nature. Explore one of the most beautiful buildings in the city while learning more about the area when you visit the impressive MOU – Museum of Oudenaarde. The MOU is housed within the town hall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site richly decorated in the Gothic architectural style. The building also has a remarkable Belfry Tower decorated with angels, mermaids and hunting scenes topped with a crown to celebrate Roman Emperor Charles V. Take some beautiful pictures here to remember your romantic trip to Oudenaarde long after you return home.

Shopping in Oudenaarde

Oudenaarde is well known for biking, beer and tourism but it’s also a very pleasant place to enjoy a little retail therapy. From cosy, original boutiques to large chain shops and top designer names, you will find some great souvenirs of your trip in the many shops in the centre of the city. Take a look around the Market, in the Nederstraat, Hoogstraat and Broodstraat and pick up something unique for your other half as Valentine’s gift. We also have a selection of jewellery shops with some exquisite Belgian Diamonds if you want to pick up something extra special!

Spa in Oudenaarde

What could be more romantic than a relaxing day in the spa together, enjoying each other’s company and being pampered. Walk 30-minutes, through the nearby park and visit Bloom Wellness Centre where they offer a wide range of wellness, beauty and relaxation treatments. You can also enjoy their jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, Hammam, a full body massage and a mud pack – whatever you like. Their packages also include a light lunch. It’s a great way to treat your other half and enjoy a truly relaxing experience as a couple.
