Mine slag heap Beringen
The Beringen mine slag heap is a living reminder of Limburg's coal mining past. What used to be a rubbish heap of heaped stones is now a hill where bushes and open spaces alternate. A special place. From the 100 meter high slag heap you have a magnificent view of the surroundings. You then drive into the Vallei van de Zwarte Beek: a beautiful nature reserve with a wide variety of plants and trees. Ideal for exploring by bike!
Just before Heusden-Zolder you pass the second mine slag heap. The former black gold has been forged into a green diamond in recent years. In the summer you can spot cheerfully fluttering queen pages here. And here too you have a beautiful view from the top. You then ride on a wonderfully quiet cycle path through the woods and stream valleys of the Limburg Kempen. What a wonderful silence you still experience here! The route ends at the TOL Beringen site.
