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 was the seat of the viscountcy.
Nowadays Veurne-Ambacht is the name of the northwestern corner of the Belgian province of West Flanders.
- ^ 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.
