Sleutelhuys is situated right in the city centre of Tielt, that itself is part of the Bruges Woodland. Surrounded by bigger, historical Flemish cities like Bruges (about 30 min), Ghent (about 30 min) and Courtray (also about 30 min) the much smaller Tielt has a lot of events to offer. So you can just stroll in the town’s centre and admire the small beautiful Belfry tower – since 2000 on Unesco’s World Heritage list. In the new visitors’ centre in the former school and convent on top of the ‘Poelberg’ you will discover our heritage. On a bright sunny day the 360° panoramic view near the windmill on this hill will reveal the splendour of the countryside as far as the Leie-Schelde Valley and the Flemish Ardennes.
