Icon description route Description

Landscape De Liereman, located between Oud-Turnhout and Arendonk, is not only one of the oldest recognized nature reserves in Flanders, it is also an official silence area. A beautiful theme walk that immerses you in the silent zen force of this unique piece of Kempen nature is the Silence Walk, which starts and ends at the visitor center. The largely unpaved route takes you from one special habitat to another: sometimes you stroll under the canopy of an oak forest, other times you cross vast heaths, grasslands and dunes, or you stroll along boardwalks through soaking wet marshes with gale bushes and mysterious low hanging bog forests.

And just when you think you've seen almost everything, the unpaved towpath along the Dessel-Schoten canal awaits you. At
the visitor center you can refuel your energy with local treats like a "pipe straw," an organic nut cookie. Ready
for something a little more punishing? Then be sure to try the 'Gageleer', a dark blond organic local beer that, according to medieval custom
spiced with wild gale.

Saturday, March 20, 2021 by Aleydis BulckeVery nice walk. Forests, fens, meadows and a beautiful stretch along the Dessel-Schoten canal. We missed junction 46, but we suspected it was hidden behind a placard (natural forest or space for agriculture), because we did see it. The app did get us back on the right track.
