Icon description route Description

The Demerbroeken are a vast chunk of nature in the wide valley of the Demer, between Testelt, Zichem, Averbode and Diest. If you follow the orange route, you also get a piece of culture in the process. Among other things, you can admire the Maagdentoren (Tower of Virgins) on your way and behind the Hemmekes meeting center you can board an authentic, handmade flatboat from the 19th century.

Follow the junctions of the Wandelnetwerk de Merode or the signposts with the orange circle.

This walk is offered by Tourism Flemish Brabant.

Saturday, December 24, 2022 by Karin van de VenAfter so many days of rain, this hike is just fine. Alternately you walk through the meadows and through the village. Personally, I do not like a long stretch of road and those are several present but the environment does not bore.
