After a thorough renovation, city brewery De Koninck can be visited again. The biggest novelty is an interactive exhibition, which shows the history of the brewery through ten rooms.  Striking is a conversation on various video screens on the wall of a reconstructed café, in which the current and various former masterpieces discuss the history of the brewery. A four-metre high walkway also shows the brewery hall itself.
The multifunctional centre not only serves as a gateway to the city (including the tourist reception) but you will also find a cosy eatery, one of Europe's best cheese refiners, the concept store for bicycle lovers, a restaurant without windows and various other typical Flemish crafts.
