town hall
You start at Tourism Borgloon in the beautiful Town Hall on the historic Markt, where you will be informed about cycling routes and bike rental. Borgloon is a pleasant town in the rolling Haspengouw. It was once a fortified city from which the Earls of Loon ruled their county. At its peak it was as big as the current province of Limburg! The name Borgloon is composed of'Borg\\\' and'Loon\\\' which means'fortress in the middle of a wooded hill\\\'.

church
Then you will soon cycle to the old steam syrup factory, where syrup is now made traditionally again. At the beginning of the last century, Borgloon was the cradle of syrup production. Further on you will discover the see-through church Reading between the Lines, which consists of 100 layers of steel plate stacked on top of each other in the shape of a Loons church. Depending on your position, the church dissolves partially or completely into the environment. Looking from the inside out, you have a very special view of the fruit landscape!
