IGmiddelkerke route

You can explore the most beautiful spots in Middelkerke thanks to the IGmiddelkerke route!

Mighty Middelkerke photographers have composed a bicycle route that passes by the spots where you can take the most beautiful pictures in Middelkerke. These range from the beach to the winding hinterland roads, to the monumental Beaufort artworks, to the WWII bunkers, to the picturesque landscapes of the hinterland. Everyone is invited to take photos along the route and share them on social media with #IGmiddelkerke.

The photographers of Machtig Middelkerke determined the route

The project Mighty Middelkerke is a project in which amateur photographers put photos they took in Middelkerke at the disposal of the municipal services. These photos will be included in municipal publications and promotional campaigns.

With a selection of these submissions, a bicycle route through Middelkerke was mapped out. The cycle route was 41.5 km long. If you don't feel like cycling such a big tour, it can be shortened to 30 km or even 26.5 km, without missing out on many beautiful places.

The Mighty Middelkerke photographers whose photos are included in the IGmiddelkerke route are Jos Thorrez, Eric Lefevere, Chloé Vandeweghe, Ludo Coulier, Patrick Bielen, Anne-Laure Proot, Johan Lambert, Luc Cassiman, Diane Coemans and Eric Roelen.
