The nice old Sterksel is beautifully surrounded by greenery. Near the village you will discover the Monastery of Providentia with its special history.
In the new residential area of Kloostervelden, just outside in beautiful Sterksel, you will find the Monastery of Providentia. Here the brothers have cared for men with epilepsy for years. In 1990 the last brother closed the monastery door behind him. De Broeders are back again, in the form of lunch restaurant De Broeders, where everyone is welcome. Epilepsy care has always remained here - now the residents of Kempenhaeghe work in the catering industry.
After a nice walk through the Kempen forests and the picturesque Sterksel you return to your starting point. The monastery played a special role in and just after the Second World War. It was evacuated by the Germans and turned into a school for the Hitlerjugend. Because it was close to the front, it was then used as a hospital by the British from October to December 1944. That way you learn something!
