Deinze is a very welcoming city. You will find us on the banks of the Leie, the Lys River nicknamed Golden River in the past, amid a breath-taking scenery in East Flanders. The area is a real little paradise if you long for peace and quiet, arts and the beauty of nature. A dynamic heart has been beating in the city of Deinze for centuries. Some of the eye catchers are Deinze’s completely renovated city centre, the Mudel museum, the provincial recreation and nature domain De Brielmeersen with its marina, the picturesque area of Astene Sas and the Ooidonk castle in Flemish Renaissance style with its unique French gardens. Other assets are the folkloristic, archaeological and industrial aspects of Deinze. Heritage and honouring its many traditions is of the utmost importance for the city of Deinze.
