Experiential expo from 3 July to 7 November 2021

Zwin Nature Park offers a wonderful view of the current Zwin river. During the Middle Ages, you would have been standing in the Zwingeul or Zwin Channel which connected Bruges to the sea and gave Flanders its golden age. Although the Zwin Channel has now silted up and disappeared, both it and its international ports have been brought back to life in this special exhibition.

In the exhibition space and the park's viewing centre, innovative technologies allow you to travel back in time to the Middle Ages. Based on scientific research by Ghent University, the ports and channel have been meticulously recreated in a virtual 3D world. As a result, you can truly experience the evolution of the Zwin Channel and its international ports, with both image and sound.
