Description

It is wonderful to cycle through nature around Brecht in Belgium. A beautiful environment that inspired the Renaissance poet Jan van der Noot in the sixteenth century.

Brecht Heide
The first kilometers are wonderful cycling through a mosaic of fields, meadows, stream valleys and old farms. It's old-fashioned quiet here. At junction 38 you cycle through the Leeuwerk, a nature reserve that was created by clay pits that filled with rainwater. The wells were created by excavating clay for the many brickyards that once lay here. Between nodes 99 and 48 you can enjoy views over the Brechtse Heide and pass a Trappistine abbey.

The Mike
At junction 45 you cross the Antitankgracht, which was dug between 1937 and 1939 to defend Antwerp. The Fort of's-Gravenwezel is also located here. A little further on you pass the Castle of's-Gravenwezel, which originally dates from the thirteenth century. You will also pass the Catershof, a nineteenth-century castle. In the beautiful park De Mik - a former arboretum - you can make a stopover on the cozy terrace of Kinderboerderij Mikerf.
