Icon description route Description

The Commander Rasquin Route starts at the Fort of Bornem and takes you past several relics from World War I and World War II. The fort is part of the outer belt of forts around Antwerp and was set up as an infantry support point during the interwar period. Later, in WWII, it mainly fulfilled a logistical task.

The walk is about 16 kilometers long and runs partly along field roads. Prefer a shorter route? No problem! The hike can be shortened by 5 kilometers.

Sights: Fort Bornem, Old station Oppuurs, Sint-Pietersburcht, Gildermonument, Grot van Branst, Sint-Bernardusabdij, various bunkers.

Sunday, April 18, 2021 by Ilse CornelissensAgree with other review. Better start at sports hall, you can park there. At starting point 41 not. Many paved, busy roads at times. Not such a topper this walk

Wednesday, September 9, 2020 by K.D.The route is well marked, the nodes are mostly easy to find. Towards the end, from node 29 on, it is more difficult to follow the correct route. Fortunately, the map helps you well. The highlight is also the starting point. Otherwise, the route was not very exciting, many busy paved roads. Tip: start at sports center Bornem.
