Icon description route Description

This beautiful walk starts at the Mechelse Heide entrance of the Hoge Kempen National Park in Maasmechelen. There is ample parking available for cars.

This is a gem of a walk. You walk through the nature reserve 'Ven onder de Berg', one of the most valuable fens in Flanders. The route continues along quiet forest paths until you are suddenly treated to a beautiful panoramic view of the white sand quarry 'Berg-Zuid'. Fens, heathland, water, and other beautiful natural elements continue to amaze you on this journey.

During this walk, do not expect any hospitality stops: you will not pass through any inhabited areas. At numerous spots with beautiful views, there are plenty of benches where you can enjoy your own picnic.
