Icon description route Description

Discover the devout tranquility of the Norbertine Abbey in Averbode. Walk from here into the nature reserve "Averbode Bos and Heide" which consists of fens, heather, dunes, woods and grasslands. An absolute highlight! You also explore the woods of the Mariapark and the Weefberg, where you have a beautiful view. An ice cream at the famous 'Lekdreef' is the perfect ending.

This walk is offered by Tourism Flemish Brabant.

Sunday, July 11, 2021 by A.D.Very nice varied route. Perfectly signposted. Just a pity that on the paths that are only accessible to pedestrians, you sometimes have to jump aside for mountain bikers. Really annoying !

Sunday, April 18, 2021 by Erik KuijpersWonderful walk through forest and heathland. Pleasant walking paths, no disturbing traffic and halfway you can stop for an ice cream in the lekdreef. Highly recommended!

Tuesday, July 21, 2020 by M.Q.Very nice hike, lots of variety. Just unfortunate about the many oaks with processionary caterpillars which made me feel not quite at ease.

Thursday, July 2, 2020 by sonja Vanderstappenhighly recommended, this is definitely in the top ten!
beautiful nature, fens, high ferns, forests...and all very well signposted. the lekdreef, the abbey and the beautiful terrace of the Moment complete it. I will come back when the heather is in bloom.

Tuesday, June 9, 2020 by R.B.Beautiful route. You encounter almost no buildings except the abbey complex itself and its beautiful store.
The hike consists of 2 loops where in the first loop you mostly walk through the forest. The second loop offers more variety in the landscape.
We also encountered horses with riders and especially mountain bikers in that second part which is also a bit more hilly. Near the central junction 100, which is at the abbey, you have two stalls where they sell ice cream.
