Icon description route Description

Miraculous crosses, a vanished moated castle and a hidden line of defense: mystery lurks beneath the soil of the Lokeren borough of Eksaarde. Above ground, everything is a lot more pleasant. This route along beautiful patches of greenery and a quietly rippling Moervaart testifies to that.

TheKruiskapel walking routeis offered to you byRouten, an initiative of Tourism East Flanders.

Friday, August 11, 2023 by Luc De wildeOne of the most beautiful routes in the flatter part of Flanders. We did follow our own variant, which we think must be the most fun: Left in the opposite direction from Bistro Bascuul (De Vosstr. 1), first to the Spletterenbrug, then along the Moervaart to the Keysershof and, as an apotheosis, back via the Liniepad. Unforgettable!

Sunday, March 20, 2022 by Liesbeth OdaVery pleasant hike, lots of walking in nature, lots of downed trees though but had been storm a few weeks ago. Very little traffic, but part on bike highway. No problem with directions.

Sunday, December 26, 2021 by E.S.Beautiful nature walk through Eksaarde, sometimes very muddy paths. At junction 36 be careful to choose the left path because the right path is closed. The last 3 km run along a busy bike path but if it is too busy you can also walk down from that bike path on the towpath.

Sunday, April 4, 2021 by G.B.Reasonably nice hike. Between March 15 and August 15 be aware of breeding season. You have to follow a small detour but return to the original path at the bridge over the Moervaart. The part along the canal is very quiet, but on the Linieweg you have to regularly jump aside for cyclists and mountain bikers.

Thursday, April 1, 2021 by J.H.First part very pleasant, then at junction 36 it goes wrong, that part is cordoned off, happens more often there in my experience, in the end we had to make our own plan and walked back to the starting location along a very unpleasant track with busy bike path with roaring trucks. No more of this route for us. Awful

Friday, November 13, 2020 by D.V.Very nice walk in nature. Be careful between point 36 and 41 not so clear as described here. A sign there would be useful. Last piece you best do not go up the stairs to the bridge, but follow the path down parallel so you're not bothered by busy bike path.

Monday, November 9, 2020 by Johan YsewijnOne had better avoid the stretch between KP38 and KP39 and plan another route. That stretch runs for 3 km. on a 2.5-meter-wide two-way bike path, where it is really life-threatening. Better alternative is (possibly) KP38-KP40-KP39 (not tried it myself).

Sunday, November 8, 2020 by S.V.Really very nice walk!!!! Only caution when stepping to point 36. If you follow the wide road there you come out on private property. You have to take the narrower path on the left (next to fields, moat)
