Bike- & Scooter rental

Across the Westhoek region on a bike or scooter

If you are you looking for a central base to explore the Westhoek region, Hotel Amfora is the place to be in Poperinge. Near the French border and at a stone's throw from Ypres you are in the heart of the WWI battlefield. Our bikes and scooters allow you to move about easily and quickly. Enjoy the region and the view while the wind blows through your hair.

Poperinge: the heart of WWI

Poperinge (or Pop, like foreign troops used to call the city) and the surrounding villages were flooded for four years by British, French and US troops. The earth still contains traces of WWI. Lots of military cemeteries are spread over the nearby villages. There is also the St. Sixtus abbey, world famous for its Westvleteren Trappist, which is located just outside the city. Explore our beautiful region in an easy and comfortable way with bikes & scooters rented at Hotel Amfora.
