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 primarily fulfilled a logistical role.

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

Monday, January 11, 2021 by J.D.the route in itself is beautiful , sorry for the parts along the streets without feeder path , we walked it via nodes even though the description states that it is signposted with signs , which we did not see

Saturday, May 23, 2020 by G.L.The first 3km and the last km of the route run along a narrow, busy street where there is no footpath. Dangerous, especially if you have children or dogs along. Regularly also difficult terrain such as large boulders or sand, so the route is not wheelchair accessible. That aside, a nice route through Bornem though.
