‘Fietsen door het Water’ in Bokrijk

Cycling through Water
3600 Genk

At junction 91 in Bokrijk you cycle straight through the ponds of De Wijers. The bike path is more than 200 meters long. The cyclists look over the water surface, passers-by only see their heads sticking out. A visual tour de force that has been awarded several times. Don't forget to post a photo with #FDHW.

Sights

Uitkijktoren de Wijers

Uitkijktoren Wijers Zonhoven 105 (parking)
3520 Zonhoven
http://www.zonhoven.be/uitkijktoren

The first ponds were built as early as the 13th century by order of the nuns of the abbey of Herckenrode. The current complex of hundreds of contiguous ponds was only created after the Zonhoven fish farmers made their living from it since 1865. In this way it became a nursery and safe haven for many rare animals and plants. Wijer is the local name for a pond on which fish are grown. From the 15 m high watchtower you get a beautiful view of this vast meadow landscape.
