Icon description route Description

Enjoy a beautiful walk along the southern flank of Houwaart Mountain. If the sun is cooperating, you'll imagine yourself in a southern French vineyard. Start at the Sint-Denijskerk in the center of Houwaart and soon you get an open view of the rows of vines. An unpaved field path takes you to the lovely St. Joseph's Chapel, with a resting bench, and a little further on you arrive at the first vineyard. You climb a bit higher still to the Vineyard Street. Take your time here to enjoy the view over the valley of the Motte with a view of Houwaart.

This hike is offered by Tourism Flemish Brabant.

Saturday, October 21, 2023 by P.P.beautiful route. I extend them as far as Nieuwrode with part of the St-Job walk and see more of the tree farm that way, too.

Saturday, December 24, 2022 by G.J.Beautiful varied hike! Some noise from the express road though, especially at the beginning, quiet and peaceful afterwards, few people encountered.

Tuesday, August 23, 2022 by Rosine Van HemelryckThe most interesting parts of this route are the vineyards and nurseries.Unless you really just want to eat miles, you're better off going from 246 straight to the vineyards from 226 - the stretch before that is nothing. For those who like botany, the tree nurseries (really all kinds of little trees) between 153 and 151 are more than worthwhile.

Sunday, October 25, 2020 by Guy Van dammeIt is a varied hike, with occasional climbs and beautiful views. The vines adorned in autumn colors gave it all a fairy-tale touch. The rain had turned many roads into mud puddles. Nevertheless, we thoroughly enjoyed this short hike. We give this hike a well-deserved 8.5/10.
