Icon description route Description

The route is an excellent introduction to the Pajottenland in the Green Belt around Brussels, with picturesque villages and great views. The topper on this route is the starting and finishing point: domain Ter Rijst in Heikruis, 49 ha of green and quiet with in the middle a beautifully restored castle dating back to 1480. The many farmhouses seem to have been copied from books by Felix Timmermans or Ernest Claes. The route contains a few steep inclines.

This route is offered by Tourism Flemish Brabant.

Tuesday, September 15, 2020 by B.D.Sunday last done with course bike. Pure enjoyment. And you can expand with the Valley Route - then just under 70km - highly recommended! beautiful views.

Tuesday, September 8, 2020 by Marleen MartensBeautiful bike route along rural roads, crossing larger roads without significant traffic. Occasional tough climbs, but also delightful descents. Few places to eat and drink along the way. Highly recommended, would do it again!

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 by W.D.Very nice rural route with, as to be expected in the Pajottenland, some tough climbs. Ample parking at starting point is an extra plus!!!

Sunday, July 19, 2020 by C.V.For those who insert somewhere along the route and want to reserve something for lunch, keep in mind that the direction arrows of the route on this plan are in the wrong direction...!!!! For the rest, beautiful route.

Friday, July 17, 2020 by Karin DbBeautiful bike route. Well signposted. Some steep hills. Ample parking at the beginning of the Kasteelstraat. Lots of fields and meadows, little opportunity to buy drinks or food along the way.

Saturday, November 2, 2019 by martine NEIRINCKXVery nice bike route, a bit hilly, but that's why it's pajottenland. Beautiful little roads, no big lanes. just to cross the road. Highly recommended!!!

Monday, August 13, 2018 by yvo De MaeyerVery nice rural cycling route. Be sure to provide drinks and lunch, because along the way there is hardly an opportunity to fortify the inner man. In Kester as you leave the trail,(after a missing sign), and in Herne there is a possibility.
Three signs have disappeared. A bike map or GPS is therefore not superfluous.

Sunday, July 15, 2018 by K.K.Very nice ride but they are going to have to check the course. 2 points where road surface came up and no warning. In Tubize street in bad condition as is the bike path.
