Description

After a cup of coffee at Brasserie De Kievit, put on your walking shoes. Nearby you will come across the Bels line, this former track leads all the way from Turnhout to Tilburg. It is now a beautiful cycle path. In 1898 the Dutch part became the property of the State Railways. Because the connection Paris-Amsterdam via Turnhout and Tilburg was the shortest, they wanted to expand the line. In 1906 the railway yard at Weelde-Statie / Baarle-Nassau border was put into use. This yard comprised a station building and a shunting yard of 24 tracks next to each other. Homes were built for train and customs personnel: the beginning of this residential community on the border. You walk back at your leisure via Landgoed Schaluinen. This hospitable estate is hidden between the woods and has a spacious layout.
