The history of Ypres is one steeped in warfare. Sitting at the corner of Belgium near the French border, the city has seen many battles from its days as a Roman settlement to the First World War. Once a flourishing trade center during the Middle Ages, Ypres, or Ieper, is wrapped in an amalgam of Flemish and French influences, evident in its cathedrals, memorials, and government buildings.

Home to more than 30,000 residents, Ypres has a perpetual air of somberness, with its plethora of War-era structures. However, that doesn’t mean it has lost all of its vibrancy. Aside from the bustling Grote Markt, the city is also home to Het Sas in Boezinge, one of the oldest breweries in Belgium. Every year, locals celebrate the Ypres Westhoek Rally, where canoe polo players shine, and Kattenstoet, a parade dedicated to the city’s fallen felines.

With its tumultuous history and traditional European charm, Ypres is a city not to be missed while in Belgium. If you find yourself itching to discover its rich heritage, here are 10 Airbnb vacation rentals to check out in the area.
