Icon description route Description

Your adventure begins at the Saint Sixtus Abbey of Westvleteren where the tranquility of the Trappists and their world-famous beer welcome you. The serene Sixtus woods offer an oasis of calm. Do not forget to enjoy the local hospitality.

The journey continues along Castle de Lovie, an architectural gem surrounded by greenery. This castle tells the history of care and leadership, a stamp on the green heart of Poperinge. Further on, the forests between Sint-Jan-ter-Biezen and the abbey breathe a deep cultural history and are home to countless flora and fauna.

As silent witnesses of bygone times, you pass the Dozinghem Military Cemetery, a place of reflection and respect for those who fell in the world wars. With each step, you unravel more of this region, its stories, and its treasures. Walk and experience this unique route; a hiking journey full of culture and nature.
