Enjoy sand and glass in the city by bike. This cycling route starts from the warmest spot in Flanders, the Lommelse Sahara, and then winds further between nature and culture. In short, variety is a plus! Pedal through a mini desert with clear blue lakes and then switch to the Blue Boulder. From this special piece of nature, the Beverlo canal leads you further to the second largest cycling experience in Limburg: Cycling through the Trees. Take a sprint and literally reach higher spheres via a 10-meter high double circle! Bolt through the forests of Bosland and then cycle between the fields to the endless rows of graves of the German military cemetery. The last quiet spot before entering the bustling city center. Get off and relax on one of the cozy terraces or with the glass blowers in the Glass House. Here you can dream away at unique exhibitions and glassblowing demonstrations. Browse the Glass Shop and climb the 30-meter high glass cone!
