Visiting the Brouwer exhibition I discovered this World Heritage building, dating back from 1526. It is small, which encourages to explore slowly and thoroughly. The building itself of course is the most obvious item to admire. But the 15 Flemish tapestries are also impressive.

Splendid museum built in and around the old 'lakenhalle', the weavers markethall. Here you will find unique pieces of medieval tapestry and silver produced in Oudenaarde. You have also access to parts of the town hall.

Interesting history museum with interactive features - we learnt a lot about the town and its past economic importance. Also an opportunity to see this historic building, along with tapestries and a silver collection. Pleasant, unobtrusive staff.
