Grote Markt, 3290 Diest
The route is fully signposted with thematic signs (no nodes).
Begin your exploration of the city at the Grand Place where many facades date from the 17th and 18th centuries and where you can admire the neoclassical City Hall and the Romanesque St. Sulpitius Church. Next, climb the steps to the Citadel. In addition to a beautiful view of the city, you will be treated to a chunk of military history. The Citadel is the final piece of Diest's transformation into a fortified town and is the only remaining brick one in Flanders. And as if all that were not enough, you will also enjoy a green oasis, the beautiful Citadel Forest. The walk then takes you back to the city center to discover many more city greenery and historic buildings, such as the beguinage with its beautiful baroque beguinage gate and the Warande Park.
This walk is offered by Tourism Vlaams-Brabant vzw.
