A day of walking through the Jekerkwartier and the Jekerdal feels like a trip abroad. How beautiful and characteristic it is here. You will also pass the viewing platform at the ENCI quarry.
The route starts at Eetcafé Bijzonder, a cozy eatery right at the foot of the Pietersberg. Before you leave, you can have a drink and eat here. Then you walk through the City Park into the Jekerkwartier. Because of the many old buildings and the remains of the city wall, you can soak up a wonderfully characteristic historic atmosphere here. Like the beautiful Helpoort. You will also pass the Bisschopsmolen, an originally medieval watermill.
Via the City Park you walk back to Eetcafé Bijzonder. Time for a pit stop. Then you walk through the former village of Sint Pieter, you will see the old village church here. Huis de Torentjes is a partly sixteenth-century country house that is inhabited by a well-known violinist. Further on you will pass a viewing platform completed in 2015 which gives you a spectacular view over the ENCI quarry. Then you walk into the idyllic Jekerdal with its vineyards. It's like France here...
