  • 101.81 km (Approximately 05:59 u)
  • Cycling route 334635

This route takes you through the Eight Beatitudes. You cycle a beautiful long day through nature and rural tranquility around eight historic villages in Brabant. Extensive forests, babbling brooks and the vast Cartierheide await you in Grenspark De Kempen. The deeper you penetrate to the heart of this cross-border area, the quieter it becomes. In Eersel you pass De Markt and Hint, which enjoy a protected village view. The route makes a stop about halfway at Hotel De Bengel. You can stay and eat here, so that you can also divide the route over two days. In Kempenmuseum De Acht Zalheden, located in a characteristic long-gabled farm, you can learn more about the history of this region.
