The western part of Zonhoven is a patchwork of countless ponds and streams. Here you are literally in the heart of De Wijers, the largest continuous pond area in Flanders where unique bird and plant species live. On the lookout tower, in the middle of De Wijers, you get a fantastic view of this nature reserve. A little further on you can take a look behind the scenes of one of the fish farms that are rightly regarded as the architects of De Wijers.
But De Wijers in Zonhoven includes more than just ponds. During the summer months, the nature reserve'de Teut\\\', with its crystal-clear fens, seems to have been ripped out of a Provençal painting because of the flowering heather. Discover the traces of the first Zonhoven visitors here: prehistoric hunters and farmers. Zonhoven also has fun events to offer, such as the Zondagsmarkt and the Superprestige Cyclocross. More information will be provided to you in the Tourism Department in the Uitpunt.
