Veurne-Ambacht was a viscounty ((in Dutch) kasselrij, burggraafschap) in the County of Flanders. Agriculture contributed mostly to the prosperous area.

In the viscountship's capital city Veurne, the Landhuis[1] was the seat of the viscountcy.

Nowadays Veurne-Ambacht is the name of the northwestern corner of the Belgian province of West Flanders.


  1. ^ In the city of Veurne's center, the name Landhuis (literally: 'country-house') was given assumedly because it served the countryside – as opposed to the adjacent Stadhuis (literally: 'city-house' though always meaning the City Hall) that served the city.
