Description

This route takes you through the beautiful nature reserves and cozy towns in the Limburg Kempen. In this area, agricultural areas alternate with dense forests and vast heaths. Get on your bike and explore the Helchteren area.

Across the Limburg Kempen

The starting point of this route is in Wijshagen. For a long time this village was an agricultural village, but around 1920 more and more people came to live who worked in nearby coal mines. Wijshagen is located on the Kempens Plateau at an altitude of about 70 metres. From here you cycle to Neerglabbeek and then on to Helchteren. Along the way you cycle alternately through vast agricultural areas and green forests where it is wonderfully quiet. Around Helchteren you will find beautiful nature reserves such as the Helchterenbos. You will also find Ter Dolen Castle here. In the Middle Ages, a large part of Helchteren was part of the Abbey of Sint-Truiden. Later it became an independent village.

The French fries shop
From Helchteren you cycle straight through beautiful nature reserves back to Wijshagen. You end your trip at the Frietboutique. Here you can relax after all the cycling and replenish your energy supply with Belgian fries, a Black Angus beef burger or a tasty snack. You deserve it after such an active day!

Castle Ter Dolen
Castle Ter Dolen is a beautiful castle from the 16th century. The predecessor of this castle was used in the Middle Ages as a summer residence for the abbots of Sint-Truiden Abbey. In 1361, the castle and the farm were burned down by a knight following a conflict with the then occupant of the castle. In 1522 the castle was rebuilt and then it was restored and rebuilt several times.
