Deinze is the centre of the East Flemish Lys Region. Although the city hasn’t many historical buildings, the area is particularly beautiful. The Ooidonk castle, the nature and recreation park ‘Brielmeersen‘ with the marina, the Museum of Deinze and the Lys Region and the surroundings at Astene-Lock and Vosselareput will certainly delight and charm you.
The many cultural and folkloristic events are good reasons too to visit the city.
Between Ooidonk castle and the river Lys, there is a wonderful piece of natural beauty. The dike of Maaigem erected to avoid floods from the river Lys, is an enchanting spot to read a book and to find its own thoughts again.
