Legal seat:

The province of West-Vlaanderen took in 1992 the initiative to set up the Regional Landscape West-Flemish Hills. The municipalities Heuvelland, Ypres, Mesen and Poperinge responded enthusiastically. The Regional Landscape West Flemish hills is more or less coincided with the southern half of the Westhoek. Meanwhile the municipalities Zonnebeke and Vleteren also joined the Regional Landscape.

The Regionaal Landschap West-Vlaamse Heuvels (RLWH) is a non-governmental organisation with a membership consisting of municipalities, the province, and organisations active in the field of nature and environment, tourism, agriculture and hunting. Our operational range consists of an area of approximately 45,000 hectares.

The RLWH is located in the southern Westhoek, in the south-west of the Province of West-Vlaanderen (Belgium). This is a relatively unspoilt rural area that is very popular with holidaymakers and tourists, not only because of its World War I past but also because of the intrinsic qualities of the countryside.

Opening up this rural area without spoiling it, through the use of a network of slow traffic roads, is an important tool for increasing support for the environmental protection of the landscape and for preservation and enhancement of biodiversity.
