Traffic-free zone

During the Tour of Flanders, a traffic-free zone will be in operation in the wide area around the finish zone in Oudenaarde, Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg, Hotond and Kruisberg. That means no cars are allowed on the Sunday. To visit that hill zone and the finish in Oudenaarde, use one of the car parks on the edge of the closed zone.

  • Parking zone Bruwaan Oudenaarde via E17 Exit 8 De Pinte
  • Parking zone Ronse via E429 Exit 31 Frasnes

You can then get to the hotspots on the course by bike from Avelgem or by free shuttle bus from Ronse and Oudenaarde.
