Sporty hostel for water babies

The Herdersbrug Hostel is situated along the Boudewijn Canal between the rural Lissewege and the picturesque Damme. Sporty types and water sports fanatics can explore the canal, hire a bicycle or use the fitness facilities. But for those who just like to relax, a visit to the sunny terrace that overlooks the canal is an absolute must.

Three in one: city, sea & nature

In the area around the hostel, you can ride along kilometres of cycling routes through the neighbouring polder villages. Or if you would like to go on a day trip, Bruges (7 km), Blankenberge (12 km), Knokke-Heist (14 km) and other seaside towns are all within easy reach of the hostel. It’s the perfect location for groups and families who want to enjoy sports, culture and the beach.
