On the square of Volkegem, you will find the old Romanesque Saint Martinus church, whose history may date back to Merovingian times, and to which Gothic side aisles have been added. You will find a baroque painting by Simon De Paepe in the church. There is also a commemorative monument for the World War I victims on the village square. Furthermore, there are two steep slopes popular amongst cyclists: the Volkegemberg and the Wolvenberg. The Wolvenberg has a climb of 19 % and leads to Mater.

If you visit Volkegem, you should definitely go to the nature reserve Volkegembos, which is owned by the Flemish community.
