Icon description route Description

Departure is at the Affligem Abbey Cultural Center. This abbey is one of the most important beacons of the region. It is the only Flemish Benedictine abbey that is still inhabited by Benedictines almost 1000 years after its foundation. At the foot of the abbey are still some hop fields that testify to the rich hop past of the region. The walk also takes you through the Doments Broek nature reserve and past the legendary Kluiskapel.

Choose sturdy walking shoes or boots, because it can get quite muddy.

This walk is offered by Tourism Flemish Brabant.

Monday, January 25, 2021 by R.S.Beautiful walk but some parts were really not doable, there you sank into the mud up to your ankles.

Monday, October 19, 2020 by N.R.First km a bit tricky, no real walking path but then you leave the macadam and the walk takes you along the most beautiful views of Hekelgem: the old mill, the hermitage chapel,... with as a finale: view of the abbey from between the hop vines.

Saturday, June 20, 2020 by V.D.Nice start, the end a little less so because at one point you have to go onto the busy Brussels lane for a while
