Tour of Flanders 2022: how do I get there?

Are you coming to the Ronde on Sunday, April 3? Then take a look at this page to see how you can get to Antwerp (Grote Markt) and Oudenaarde (Mindersbroedersstraat). The organiser Flanders Classics, together with the Province of East Flanders, the town of Oudenaarde, the municipality of Kluisbergen, the town of Ronse and De Lijn, will provide free shuttle buses to take visitors from the railway stations and public car parks to the Oude Kwaremont - Paterberg, Kruisberg - Hotond zone and the finish zone.

During the weekend of 2 and 3 April Antwerp will be all about the Tour of Flanders. It is best to come to Antwerp on foot, by bike or public transport. If you come by car, we advise you to change to one of the P+Rs on the outskirts of the city.

What do we provide?

  • Inter-volunteers who provide welcome and assistance in these areas. 

Do you have a disability and would you like to make use of these facilities? Send an email to thomas.desmet@inter.vlaanderen and specify which facilities you want to use at which location. If you also want a parking space, please send us the number plate of your car. Inter will then provide you with all information and documents in advance.
