This route takes you through Heist-op-den-Berg, a charming town in the Antwerp Kempen. In the rural countryside you can enjoy the tranquility and the natural landscape.

Heistse Berg
Soon after boarding, you will cycle up the Heistse Berg: a 48 meter high hill that forms the heart of Heist-op-den-Berg. You will see a number of sights here, such as the old courthouse and town hall, the fourteenth-century Sint-Lambertus church and the rectory from 1769. Further on you will enter the Hoogbergbos. You can climb the water tower on Sunday afternoon for a view that will take you as far as Brussels and Antwerp on a clear day.

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.
