Icon description route Description

This route starts at the Averbode Abbey, a beautiful structure on the border point between the provinces of Flemish Brabant, Antwerp and Limburg. Via Maria Park you walk through the Averbode Bos en Heide nature reserve. You will discover vast forests along fens and marshes. The paths here meander through a unique landscape in Flanders. If you like peace and nature you will feel right at home here.

After about 5 km walk you arrive at the tavern Den Eik where you can make a nice stop in this beautiful Merode area. A bit further you come along a walking path with on the right side a nice view of the abbey. When you almost reach the end of this route you come to the so-called 'Lekdreef' where you can enjoy a well-deserved ice cream in the shadow of the abbey. Tip: be sure to visit the Abbey Café of Het Moment (behind the abbey). In this special place, most dishes are prepared with at least one Averbode product: beer, cheese, bread, gingerbread or speculoos.

Wednesday, August 25, 2021 by Luc WullaertNice and pleasant walk in the woods and along the fens around the abbey. Definitely a plus this period : the heather is in bloom. Recommended

Saturday, August 21, 2021 by Michel GallettiNice hike, reasonable amount of inclines and descents (not too big), sandy ground in most parts of the trail. Largest part also through fairly wooded area so for landscapes I wouldn't recommend it. Also quite busy because of the abbey in the area which is worth seeing. The abbey terrace is a nice ending.

Tuesday, June 22, 2021 by I.V.Beautiful composition with historical sites at the beginning, almost only unpaved paths and roadways, diverse biotopes and still passable even after heavy rain.

Sunday, January 3, 2021 by Andy LuytenNice walk - leaving at point 100 is a bit more difficult now that all the parking there is gone. Easier to leave at point 96, large parking lot there, or at afspanning den eik, also large parking available.

Sunday, August 30, 2020 by F.V.Fantastic hike. Perhaps best during the week if possible, as around the abbey it is quite busy on weekends

Sunday, August 30, 2020 by Ria VerachtertWas already somewhat familiar with the nodes there, but now followed that route once and still saw new surprises. Beautiful walk and now especially with the heather in bloom. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
