Gluten-free Meetjesland

Enjoy it!

Meetjesland is a rural region located in the north of Flanders, situated between the historic cities of Bruges in the west, the city of Ghent to the south and Antwerp to the east.

  • The northern part is characterised by green fields, poplar-lined dykes and beautiful creeks which attract a wide variety of birds and waterfowl.
  • The south offers woodlands and small streams and the whole region is dotted with pretty villages and historic market squares.
  • The whole area has a dedicated cycling and hiking network with marked routes for you to choose from, or to create your own route using the "junction numbers” on your map (€6 and available at local tourist offices and accommodation providers).


In this region, 9 hotels and B&B’s and a variety of 12 local restaurants have decided to get together to offer a true gluten free experience to their guests. At your accommodation, you will be offered a varied choice at breakfast. Some providers will also offer you tasty home-cooked meals and lunch packs

The restaurants will offer you a dedicted gluten free menu, or their regular dishes will be  adapted to your needs, offering you the same quality meal as the “regular”guests.

All participants have been trained in catering for guests requiring gluten free alternatives. Meetjesland Gluten Free works closely together with the Flemish Coeliac Society and offers regular workshops to the members to keep abreast of new developments. Other dietary requirements such as lactose free or sugar free can often be catered for as well, just ask your accommodation provider for advice.
