Icon description route Description

Pieter Bruegel the Elder left his mark on this route. From the center of Dilbeek you cycle to the little church of Sint-Anna-Pede , the start of the Bruegel walk that takes you past reproductions of Bruegel's finest paintings in this Open Air Museum. The landscapes of the Pede Valley were a source of inspiration for the painter.

But also the green domains of Coloma in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, the Castle of Gaasbeek and Groenenberg are on your way. The water mill of Sint-Gertrudis-Pede invites you for a rest. After a bike ride, a kriek, geuze or lambic from the region can taste good.

This route is offered by Tourism Flemish Brabant.

Tuesday, July 21, 2020 by R.V.Have ridden this one ! It is beyond comprehension : every time I follow a bike route now I find that signs are missing, whether they are arrows on the moutainbike routes, or recreational routes....tis almost the same everywhere : negligence, a generalized "I don't care" attitude. I read date several people have now denounced this

Sunday, May 17, 2020 by daniel WandelsI drove this route too and unfortunately I didn't write anything down but there are some signs missing and you can't drive this route properly, it's URGENT that something be done about it, and not only on this route but on other routes there are signs missing too. 👎🏻

Sunday, May 10, 2020 by Peter Vanden DriesscheBeautiful and varied cycling route for the athletic amateur. Done with wife and son during the corona crisis as an alternative excursion and this was not too bad. A picnic in the beautiful and sunny weather in early April was unfortunately not allowed.

Saturday, July 13, 2019 by en Jasmina Stijn Wonderful route to explore the region. Ridden with course bike and gravel bike. For the course bike, some hiking trails (gravel/sand) were not ideal.

Did the route with GPS, so we can't say anything about signposting.

Too few altimeters to call this "the Tuscany of the North" ;)

Tuesday, May 28, 2019 by Marc BeckersDear, I cycled part of this route yesterday and wanted to say something. I started the route near my home on the Wolsemstraat in Dilbeek. The route is pretty nice although I lost my way once between Oudenaken and St. Pieters-Leeuw where I missed a sign (or maybe it was just missing ?) so I ended up on the Pepingsesteenweg and rode to St. Pieters-Leeuw where I got back on the route at the church. Also in the center of Schepdaal I think there was a problem with the signage.
I did the route with a road bike and on 32 pieces the route sent me on a piece that was not suitable for it :
1. the part of the Groenstraat between the Brusselstraat in Lennik and the Kasteelstraat in Gaasbeek.
2. the Elsweg in St. Pieters-Leeuw of which a part is really a walking route and not a bicycle route.
3. the Puttenberg and the part after that to get to the Klein Nederstraat in Vlezenbeek.
I still don't understand why I didn't get a flat anywhere. For me, these are "missing links" that really need to be fixed.
Other than that, I really enjoyed the ride. Soon I expect to add the rest of the route as well.

Sunday, February 24, 2019 by M.W.Found it a very nice route. occasionally not super clearly marked but very nice (especially the second part)

Tuesday, August 14, 2018 by Veerle GunsFine and varied route. Poor signage though, poorly placed and sometimes missing. So plan extra time to take a few wrong turns.

Thursday, May 10, 2018 by M.S.Bicycle route ridden on Ascension Day and it must be said that I did not find it a very relaxing experience. Heavy traffic, too many cars especially in the Schepdaal / Itterbeek area.

Monday, November 13, 2017 by M.D.Not recommended for road bikes and not recommended with narrow tires with or after rainy weather. Had two punctures today and could not finish my race. Soon I will try again but with my mountain bike.
The signage seems fine to me. On the part I rode, all the signs seemed new to me.

Thursday, November 3, 2016 by P.V.The signage is not always clear. After getting lost twice (in St-Pieters-Leeuw/Zuun), and returning to the last sign I saw, I stopped. The first time I guessed to turn into a street, and this turned out to be correct. The second time, unfortunately, I didn't find the sign again, so I made a little bike ride of my own, following my nose....

Thursday, August 18, 2016 by L.T.Regular dismounting is definitely recommended, especially for those who do not really have the climbing legs: one hill follows another! Not insurmountable and doable on a normal bike, but you will feel it...
Bikes with sensitive tires are better left at home: several times you ride on pure field roads, gravel, gravel, cobblestones ...

Thursday, August 18, 2016 by L.T.The signage is quite easy to follow. The signs are rather weathered, on most of them the text is almost completely worn away but the direction arrow and usually the name 'Bruegelroute' have been newly pasted on. We got the impression that the trail is well maintained and that any defects will be fixed as soon as they are reported. Of course, it is always smartest not to depend entirely on the signs and to have a map or GPS track at hand.
