Description

Each studio has a luxury bed, a sitting area with TV, a private bathroom with shower and a fully equipped kitchen with dining area. Voilà! ‘The Globetrotter’ studio even adds a relax Provencal terrace. ‘The Reader’ has a cosy mezzanine where you can watch TV in real cinema seats. So choose wisely.

The neighbourhood

Kortrijk is famous for its history going back to the Roman Times. On the Grote Markt you can admire the 15th century belfry ‘Het Belfort ‘(Unesco World Heritage) and City Hall. The Broeltorens, the beguinage (Unesco World Heritage), the new linen museum, and the Kortrijk 1302 museum are definitely worth a visit. On Buda Island you’ll find the renowned Buda Art Center.
For flora lovers and jogging enthusiasts there is the 175 years old International Rosegarden that won the ‘garden of Excellence’ label and the castle parc just across the street.
Shopping is a great experience in the shopping mall K, in the pedestrian shopping streets or the boutiques in the Doorniksewijk. Kortrijk is also known for its great restaurants and cozy cafes with nice terraces.
The walking tours and bike rides near the river the Leie and the City surroundings are well worth a try. (Maps are available)
The Albertpark offers you a skatepark "The Skatebowl" that is one of the finest in the Benelux.
Lille, France (20 minutes by car), Gent (30 min) or Bruges (30 min) with their historical and cultural sites as well as great shopping make for a wonderful day trip.

Getting around

The bus stop, with frequent busses bringing you from and to the city center and train station, is only 100m away.

Wonderful stay at the unique globetrotter. Marijke is a kind and extremely helpful host, who respected our privacy also. Would recommend to stay for a night or a week to explore Korjtrik and the rest of Belgium.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Globetrotter whilst visiting Belgium to ride the ronde van vlaanderen. Marijke was so helpful and kind accommodating us and our bikes. We loved our stay and had everything we needed for a fun and relaxing trip. Thank you Marijke!

Marijke was a lovely host and incredibly responsive to our last minute plans. We decided to stay with her the day before our arrival and she was very responsive and allowed us to plan ahead. The apartment is well stocked and a lovely place to stay. Everything was well maintained, clean and easy to use. I would be happy to stay here again!
