Quiet border forests and Burgundian conviviality

  • 47.69 km (Approximately 02:48 u)
  • Cycling route 740792

Along the border between Tilburg and Turnhout you will experience the good things in life in both countries! You will find plenty of natural beauty, beautiful villages, tranquility and the well-known Burgundian conviviality.

Gorp & Rovert
The route starts at the Tourist Office Ravels in Ravels. Here you will find all the information you need to make your stay in this region a great memory. In the countryside, the kilometers seem to pass by themselves, as you drive through a mosaic of stream valleys, fields and grasslands. Further on you drive into the old deciduous and coniferous forests at Landgoed Gorp & Rovert. How wonderfully quiet it is here!

New Church
You pass through the hamlets of Rovert & Gorp, where you can spot some old farms and a hunting lodge from 1870. Nieuwkerk is partly in the Netherlands, partly in Belgium. The hamlet owes its name to the frontier church that was built here in 1652. Catholics from Tilburg could practice their faith here. Further along the border you will find a succession of forest, farms and agricultural land. In Ravels you can relax on a terrace.
