Icon description route Description

This discovery tour through the villages of Moorsel, Meldert and Hekelgem has a bit of everything in store: the tranquility of the landscape, the greenery of the Kluisbos and the history of the beautiful 16th-century Waterkasteel of Moorsel. You step past the hop field in Hekelgem and the beautiful Affligem Abbey. Then you immediately think of beer, but the vines of domain De Kluizen reveal that delicious wine is also made here. Are you starting to crave a culinary stop? Then you have the choice between the refined cuisine of Hostellerie De Biek in Moorsel-dorp, the rural hospitality of taverne De Oude Snas in Meldert or Gasthof d'Oude Brouwerij at Affligem Abbey.Route offered by Tourism East Flanders.

Sunday, May 15, 2022 by F.V.Walked this hike after a long dry spell. Fine walk with beautiful views. Largely along unpaved paths.

Monday, January 11, 2021 by A.G.A very beautiful and varied hike through nature (no inclines). Very few paved roads or houses, a great plus. Currently particularly muddy and actually not doable. Highly recommended though when the trails are drier.

Saturday, November 14, 2020 by F.L.Beautiful course in a beautiful natural area. Only a 4 because of the many mud puddles. Did the extended version via nodes 11, 12 and 17. Highly recommended!

Sunday, June 28, 2020 by L.J.Beautiful walk in a rolling landscape. If you also like some forest, after junction 10 you can take junctions 11 and 12 (instead of going straight to junction 18). At junction 12 you arrive at the Kluizenbos where you can take a nice loop (we took the red loop) of Natuurpunt through the forest. This starts at the hermitage chapel. After the loop, you return to node 12 and can get back on the hiking trail (node 18) via node 17. After node 1, take a piece of node 100 to the abbey, ideal picnic spot. With these extras, we came to 13.5km.

Saturday, May 30, 2020 by D.F.Nice route with lots of variety and hardly any road. Field roads, some forest, the hop field in Affligem, worthwhile!

Monday, April 27, 2020 by P.D.rather a lot of asphalt roads and concrete roads in the beginning, but the forests around Affligem made up for a lot.
