Reading between the lines in Borgloon

This beautiful see-through church located in the fields of Borgloon is a stunning piece of architecture. Throughout the lines however, you can still enjoy the beautiful views. We would recommend going around sunset on a clear day for some #Instaproof pics & stories. 


Channel your inner royal with some castle candy 

Ever wanted to feel like a princess? Check out the Walzin Castle and let your imagination take over while staring at the most beautiful views! This local hot spot is also a popular place to go kayaking on the Lesse, so that’s two births in one stone! 

Dinant too far to feel like a princess? No worries, we’ve got you! The Borrekes Castle in Antwerp is located in a park and open at any time. So consider the perfect location for your next date FOUND! 


Still your history hunger with The Villers Abbey 

This Villers La Ville hidden gem is only a 30 min drive from Brussels. The Abbaye de Villers (Villers Abbey) is a destination site imbued with history and emotion. Its majestic ruins give a marvelous idea of the life of monks of the Cistercian Order. 


Fondry des Chiens, aka the Belgian Grand Canyon  

Want to explore Namur and like a good walk? Let us tell you about this next location! The hiking trail of Fondry des Chiens is located in Nismes, and offers different hiking options! Our fave? Going all the way up to enjoy the stunning lookout view! 


Hot on the trail – The Abbanets tunnel 

Can’t get enough of hiking after the Fondry des Chiens? We’ve got some more places for you to discover! Also located in Nismes, you can find this gorgeous off-track path. Please be careful as the train trail is still in use by a local steam train. 


Cars; the graveyard edition in Châtillon 

For the last couple of decades, Belgian nature has been trying to absorb a couple of hundred cars into its landscape. Say what?! During the war these cars were left behind by US soldiers that were stationed in Châtillon. Now a handful still remains and can be found in the woods between Châtillon and Fourneau David.
