Description

Discover the tranquil surroundings of Londerzeel, a village that is part of the Green Belt north of Brussels. You cycle through the polders along meadows, streams and fields. Poplars, willows and ash also adorn the landscape. Diepensteyn Castle is an old medieval moated castle from the thirteenth century. The last inhabitants left the castle after the French Revolution at the end of the eighteenth century. Since 1989, the building has been owned by the Palm Brewery, which co-financed the restoration work in the 1990s. The famous Brabant Draft Horses, the logo of the beer brand, graze on the castle grounds. If you don't like beer, you can still visit the beautiful park and ornamental garden on this domain. Londerzeel may now be known as a beer village, but it was once a center for chicken farmers. It is not for nothing that the inhabitants bear the name'kiekenplukkers\\\'. The village center houses a number of beautiful historic buildings, such as the Sint-Kristoffelkerk, the Castle domain and the Heldenplein, where a bald cypress is more than 100 years old. One of the oldest post mills in Flanders, the Heidemolen, is located in neighboring Malderen. This mill probably dates from the twelfth century.
