Icon description route Description

Start your tour in Rupelmonde, the village closely associated with the moated castle that the Counts of Flanders had built there in the twelfth century. Stroll past polders and parks such as Schouselbroek and the Gelaagpark, a former clay farm. Visit the Fort of Steendorp, only visitable with a guide.

The Steendorp walking route is offered to you by Routen, an initiative of Tourism East Flanders.

Monday, May 29, 2023 by Geert Van den hendeHandsome route, especially enjoyable on a dry and sunny May day, because then you won't be bothered by swampy grounds. You are catapulted back to earlier times, it is not difficult to imagine what life must have been like here at the time of Mercator. Nice alternation also of green surroundings and village life.

Thursday, October 14, 2021 by Hilde Vanthuyne hildeVery nice surprising route , first along the Scheldt , once out of Rupelmonde nice winding towpath along the river , back along fields , forests , ponds , worth repeating . No cafe along the route , only in Rupelmonde , and in Steendorp but it was closed that day .

Monday, December 14, 2020 by Patrick DobbelsAs already confirmed below i/d other reviews, a very nice hiking trail, alternating between paved and unpaved. First part on the Scheldt dike on a concrete surface and from the turning point in Temse largely unpaved. The part around the fort of Steendorp is mighty fine, but very muddy, appropriate footwear is recommended.

Saturday, September 19, 2020 by Andre TolpeThis is a nice hike, a bit flat along the Scheldt river and then into the forest along The Fort of Steendorp ( very nice piece ) some climbing and descending . At the start lots of parking places and a terrace . Top

Sunday, August 2, 2020 by Frank VRA very nice walk both beside the Scheldt and more village inwards in the fields and the fort of steendorp! Highly recommended! You regularly come across eating and drinking places but it is recommended to provide your own drinks, especially in warm weather. Is a 13 KM hike so good footwear is a must!
