Eeklo (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈeːkloː]) is a Belgian municipality in the Flemish province of East Flanders. The municipality comprises only the town of Eeklo proper. The name Eeklo comes from the contraction of "eke" and "lo", two Old German words meaning oak and sparse woods (compare English Oakley).

Some friends and I visited this museum on 3rd February 2017, previous museum visits I have undertaken in France consist mainly of ramshackle objects covered in dust and dirt poorly displayed.
This museum is quite the opposite, the time, love and dedication has resulted in a real gem and a tribute to the gentleman who envisaged this museum.
We looked at the Canadian section first, thinking we would be in and out within an hour or so. How wrong I was, so much detail from uniform to weapons, radios to ration books.
When we exited the Canadian section a coffee was needed, this morphed into lunch. The restaurant is huge, the ceiling magnificent and story behind it interesting.
I read a previous review that remarked the food was 'basic'. If my Croque Madame was 'basic' then basic works for me. It was nothing short of magnificent, fresh salad, gorgeous mayonnaise and as for the ham & cheese toastie, sorry 'Croque Madame' they were superb with two perfect fried eggs on top. €9 or thereabouts 10/10.
Coffee was good.
The Polish museum upstairs followed and was nothing less than a model makers paradise depicting local events during the Second World War.
A real pleasure to be able to visit this private museum, €11 was the entrance fee for an adult, well worth it.

Deze herberg heeft een zeer grote variatie van top Belgische bieren die men op de juiste temperaturen serveert. De sluitingsdag is woensdag, dinsdag voormiddag is de marktdag in Zomergem en dan is het er bijzonder druk. Je kan er niet eten maar wel genieten van een hapje zoals een portie kaas of salami. Zeker een bezoekje waard.

As this is the only atraction of St.Laureins, we got to see it because of the history. It's just a simple bridge over the Leopold Canal. The bridge was made in 1944. There is a board with information about how the bridge was made. The location is a litle bit hidden, far behind the houses on the "vlotweg". You have to come by car or bicycle if you stay in the hotels in St.Laureins. It's about 3 km from the town centre. The name of the bridge was 'Lieve' bridge but the the local council gave other name 'Oosthoek' brige as it is indeed a gateway to Oosthoek, an area at the east part of St.Laureins at the border of Blegium and the Netherlands. It's a monument and a remembrance of switchback periode (liberation of Zeeuws-Vlanderen) but it's also used for local traffic.

This is a special area with lovely nature and small lakes. Its nice to sit down and watch the nature and allot of different kind of birds. Also a place to have peaceful walks or riding a bike. Its at the border with the Netherlands and a must see when you are in that area.

Bizarium is a museum full of weird inventions. A museum of brilliant inventors and their boundless imagination, their technical ingenuity and above all immense passion. Bizarium inspires and surprises with genius, scientific and wacky inventions. Think of a flying bicycle, a walking submarine, a hair helmet, a swimming umbrella, as well as bizarre idees from geniuses like Leonardo da Vinci, Athanasius Kircher and Nikola Tesla.
Of all the rare museums I have visited, this is indisputably the best. Full of the most incredible and weirdest contraptions, passing through the attempts to reach perpetual motion, as well as the simplest inventions for solving unfeasible feats. This is a MUST VISIT if...MoreHello, Thanks for this great review and recommendation! We're pleased to hear you enjoyed our tour in the museum. Looking forward to see you back. Ann & Marc

Helemaal vlak met veel prachtige kreken in volle natuur. Een goede manier om deze streek te verkennen is met de wagen er naartoe rijden en aan een fietsknooppunt een rondrit met de fiets starten. Je kan er rustig rondtoeren op paden waar er meestal geen of op zijn minst heel weinig autoverkeer is. Wie tot rust wil komen en onderweg wil genieten van een lekker drankje en/of hapje(s) is hier absoluut aan het goede adres. Wij genieten er al vele jaren van. Vervelen doet het nooit.

Every Sunday from the beginning of may till the end of September, the stoomcentrum manages to keep some nice steam trains running on the tracks between Maldegem and Eeklo, together with historical passenger railway cars. If you like trains yourself or have kids, it's definitely worth the visit! They kick off the season with a train weekend at the beginning of May (where several guest trains visit Maldegem). Apart from the Sundays, trains run on other dates, too, but for that I recommend checking the schedule on their website (http://www.stoomcentrum.be/ )
