Time seems to have stood still a bit in Molenschot. Here you will see the St. Anne's Church from 1887, a monumental rectory from 1879 and some beautiful farms. Opposite the church is the Sint-Anna chapel from 1842. It is visited by women who pray for a man or a child:"Anneke, Anneke, give me a man.\\\"

Thirst
You walk through the farmlands to Dorst, another beautiful village. Here you will see, among other things, the Sint-Marculphuskerk from 1912. Then you walk a long way through the Boswachterij Dorst. This nature reserve mainly consists of Scots pines that were planted on the heath at the beginning of the nineteenth century. It is so quiet here, ideal for a day of relaxation.
