Tuesday, March 23, 2021 by Brigitte NotteBecause it is fairly much in the built-up area to walk, a bit of a different walk than usual but....very nice, the lovely surroundings in Latem do charm. It really feels like an artists' village. Bit through the Latem Meersen as well. Nice walk. Plenty of parking space in the Palepelstraat, where the hike starts.

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 by B.B.Nice walk but fairly in the built-up area where there is not really a path or sidewalk so one has to walk on the street. As there are quite a lot of cyclists and cars regularly pass by, one has to pay attention. The stretch along the river Lys is of course the highlight of this hike.

Tuesday, January 26, 2021 by L.S.Pleasant walk through the center of Latem, but also through the fields. Careful because can be (very) muddy after a few rainy days.

Friday, November 6, 2020 by F.W.Beautiful walk that you can do perfectly with children. If desired, you can shorten via the Heidebergen. In some places you can start to doubt if you haven't missed a turn. People patiently wait their turn when you come along paths that are only suitable for one person.

Monday, July 20, 2020 by Peter BarbaixBeautiful and varied walk. With an alternation of village expression, picturesque Leie atmosphere and mostly tasteful architecture. The local galleries are worth a visit. Definitely an experience more. It took some searching to find the starting point and at times we lost our way. A map or the smartphone are welcome in that case.
