Icon description route Description

Departure at the starting place Sint-Genovevakerk of Oplinter for a trip through the fields towards the neighboring village of Sint-Margriete-Houtem. Along the way you are treated to beautiful views of rolling fields and orchards. The military cemetery contains 173 soldiers who died during the Battle of Sint-Margriete-Houtem on August 18, 1914, when the Belgian army tried to stop the advancing Germans at the Gete. Less turbulent is the history of the monastery Maagdendaal in Oplinter, a handsome monument with a beautiful baroque gatehouse.

This walk is offered by Tourism Flemish Brabant.

Sunday, September 19, 2021 by M.M.Very nice, varied walk. Through meadows, narrow paths, villages and along a military cemetery. On our return we had something to drink in newly opened café/terrace 'Zwoel' located in the ganzendries, near the church of Oplinter.

Sunday, October 25, 2020 by G.M.G. Departure in the center then field roads, cobblestone, concrete roads ... Rather quiet in October, fields already plowed, beautiful views...Maybe better in April when everything is in bloom because some orchards pass by. Along the way you pass a military cemetery with the necessary information where you should definitely stop.
