Icon description route Description

Start at Kasteel ter Ham, a beautiful fifteenth-century moated castle that has been cleverly renovated. You briefly follow the Molenbeek along a wooded road before walking through open fields with wide views.
It was in these fields that the largest plane crash in Belgian history occurred in 1961. Sabena flight 548 crashed and 73 people, including the entire American figure skating team and a farmer in the field, lost their lives. A plaque along the way tells the full story. That you are near Brussels Airport here is also proven by the control tower that accompanies you throughout the walk. Yet it is surprisingly quiet near one of the busiest places in the country.
