This route takes you through the historic heart of Sint-Niklaas, a pleasant town in the Belgian Waasland. A walk with many sights, such as mansions, churches and art deco houses.

Saint Nicholas Church
Sint-Niklaas is named after Nicholas of Myra, the saint who is also known as Sinterklaas. So it's no wonder that you will find the Saint Nicholas Church there. It was built in the thirteenth century. In 1690, Sint-Niklaas was ravaged by a disastrous fire that had started in a gin distillery. The Saint Nicholas Church was also damaged, it was rebuilt in Baroque style. Close to this church is the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk from 1844. On the tower is a six-meter high gilded statue of the Virgin Mary, popularly called Miet Verguld.

Walburg Castle
In Sint-Niklaas you will find the largest market square in Belgium, it was established in 1248. In addition to the Sint-Nicolaaskerk, you can see the neoclassical town hall from the nineteenth century. Its predecessor (the Parish House) is located across the street from the Grote Markt and was built in 1663. There is a historic landmark in every street on your route. On the Castrodreef, for example, you can walk along the seventeenth-century Castrohof. Further on you will pass another gem: Castle Walburg. This moated castle originally dates from the sixteenth century.
