Icon description route Description

(This is the Diamond Route route shortened to the loop around Nijlen).

In 1885, the first grinding mill was established in Nijlen. In the following years a real industry developed in the Kempen. Diamonds brought prosperity to the region. During the 60s and especially 70s and 80s the tide turned. The move of production to low-wage countries, technological innovations and increased government control at home meant the end of rural industry. Want to learn more about diamond history in the Kempen? Then stop along the way at the information signs with QR code and listen at the audio post to testimonies from the past.
