Description

This route takes you past the most beautiful spots of the Haspengouw fruit region around Borgloon. The decor fascinates all year round: from the sea of blossoms in spring to the ripe fruits at harvest time - and the unspoilt silence of winter.

Borgloon?
Haspengouw is a fertile region with a rich past. The Romans expelled the Celts and from the third century onwards the monastic orders left their mark on the region. In the Middle Ages, the nobility built grand fortresses and castles. Borgloon became the capital of the County of Loon. In the east, the wealth is underground: marl. The exploitation of this stone today results in a gigantic network of underground passages, 300 km long.

Castles?
Haspengouw is a picturesque, sloping region where you will find unparalleled peace and tranquility. With no fewer than ten castles, extensive wine estates, a hundred thousand fruit trees full of fresh fruits, a syrup factory, an abbey, cozy streets and an absolutely beautiful nature, this is pure enjoyment of history in a beautiful landscape.
