Icon description route Description

The Wetterse warande dunes form a remarkable piece of Scheldt nature, which cause the Siint-Gertrudis church to tower high above the landscape. While keeping it mostly on the plain for most of this hiking trail, we remarkably go up in elevation at the end.

The Stuifduin hiking trailis brought to you byRouten, an initiative of Tourism East Flanders.

Wednesday, June 12, 2024 by S.V.Caution! The ferry is no longer operated. So you can't do the entire hike. For the rest beautiful walk

Saturday, April 30, 2022 by A.V.Beautiful walk along the Scheldt and through the woods. Idd on top of the bridge there could have been a sign (to the right). Also thought I had to go around the church but it was around the apartment block. All in all very nice.

Friday, May 21, 2021 by Chris VerborgtBeautiful walk with the ferry across the Scheldt as an extra. There is almost no parking at the starting point of the trail. It is a bit confusing that you have to park some distance away. Perhaps better to have the hike start there.

Sunday, April 4, 2021 by Mira BradaiOn the bridge turn right. We went left and didn't realize until 2 km later that we had gone the wrong way.... Too bad there is no sign on the bridge

Saturday, February 20, 2021 by I.F.Beautiful and quiet walk. Start Market 1 is not correct. No signs to be found at #1. Even sign at the church has disappeared. Presumably due to major construction work going on there. Fortunately helped by a lady who was just passing by. Only found first sign across the bridge. After that very well signposted. Ferry also nice extra.

Sunday, August 23, 2020 by G.M.Very nice walk where you are always amazed at the beautiful nature so close to home. With the kids the ferry crossing is a highlight. Be sure to look up crossing times under "ferry service Wichelen". Good signage. Go to the town hall before the 1st junction. Only drawback: cars are allowed to drive along the Scheldt.
