Kortrijk is a small city in the hearth of the Fladres. I visit Kortrijk twice a year since 2014 to teach in the Hantal Business School of the Vives University. My course of Statistics is attended by Erasmus students coming from around all Europe, and more recently also from non-European countries. Kortrijk is a nice and quiet place to spend a few days, especially under the snow. The main cathedral is very beautiful, and the central square is populated by many restaurants where to try different types of cuisine. Do not forget to try the Belgian beer, it is worth the trip to Belgium.
