Eisden colliery


The former colliery at Eisden has undergone a veritable metamorphosis. Until 1987, it was a place of industry and hard work; now it is primarily a place to enjoy nature and peace and quiet.

The most beautiful panorama

Terhills, the main entrance to the Hoge Kempen National Park, has the most beautiful panorama of Flanders. Yes, it’s true! The iconic 'green mountains' have featured in the background of many Instagram photos. These mountains are actually mine slag heaps that have been completely overtaken by nature. And various old buildings of the mining site have found a new lease of life as a cinema, hotel, or restaurant.

Terhills covers an area of approximately 356 ha in Dilsen-Stokkem and Maasmechelen, on the edge of Belgium's only National Park. Shaped by its past as an industrial mining and gravel extraction site, today the area is characterized by lush fauna and flora, huge bodies of water and unique views from the mining slag heaps.
