Icon description route Description

Historically, Erps-Kwerps consists of two separate nuclei. Kwerps lies just east of Erps. The hike starts at the church of Erps. The original Sint-Amandus church burned down in 1706 due to a lightning strike. In the mid-19th century, the new neo-Gothic church was completed. Notable in the church are the two paintings by Aarschot painter P.J. Verhaegen: St. Barbara and St. Donatus. During your walk, airplanes thunder above your head. Pretty impressive when one of those hundred-ton planes whizzes right above your head.

This walk is offered by Tourism Flemish Brabant.

Thursday, May 12, 2022 by Rosine Van HemelryckI don't understand what people like so much about this hike ! It is terribly monotonous (in fact, you can see it when you look at the map). OK, the planes are a consolation but even there you should not expect too much. There are undoubtedly better ways to spot planes. As far as I'm concerned, this is a pure waste of time

Thursday, August 19, 2021 by T.N.Beautiful and peaceful walk through the fields, with (due to the corona, not too many) planes flying overhead yet. Distant views, to even the atomium on a clear day.

Thursday, May 13, 2021 by P.P.A nice walk when you live nearby, as I do, to stretch your legs without having to look around much for cars. Nor is the airplane noise overwhelming in these times of corona. Regarding the comment about the distance in the previous reviews, isn't this referring to the "Laar and List hike" that starts from Nederokkerzeel ?
