Description

Wuustwezel is a charming Belgian village in the Antwerp Kempen. With this walk you will discover some historical sights and the natural beauty around Wuustwezel.

Little Brook
From the starting point you can walk straight into the Uilenbos, a small-scale forest area where Corsican pines and deciduous trees grow. When you walk out of the forest, you will see a pond on the right that was created by sand extraction. Further on you walk along the untouched heath of the Groot Schietveld: a military training area, so inaccessible. A little later you walk along the Kleine Beek. Pollard willows and ash grow on the banks. What a beautiful spot!

Hens Castle
As you walk along a path lined with monumental old oaks, you pass an old castle gate on the left. It is the former entrance to Ginhoven Castle, a building that was destroyed by a V-bomb during the Second World War. In the outlying area you can still see some beautiful old farms. At the municipal park you pass the Neo-Flemish Gothic-built Hens Castle from 1910. Further on is the village church, which originally dates from 1257, but was renovated around 1900.

Noordertuin van Antwerpen

The Noordertuin of Antwerp is a beautiful green area to the north of Antwerp. Get on your bike or put on your walking shoes and hit the road in this area to completely unwind a stone's throw from the busy city. Hidden among the greenery are special forts from the First World War and you will find many more beautiful things here.
