Heistse Berg

Gentlemen's Woods
In the outlying area you cycle through a succession of agricultural fields and groves. It is wonderfully quiet here to make kilometers. You regularly see old chapels and Kempen farms. Between junctions 67 and 94 you drive a bit on the Kempen-Hagelandroute, a cycle path that has been constructed over a former railway line. Then you drive into the Herenbossen, a beautiful nature reserve located in the Nete valley. You can go to Tourism Heist-op-den-Berg for more information about this region.
