Shop ‘til you drop

Hasselt is one of the most exclusive shopping and fashion towns in the country. Trendy boutiques, hip designer shops, concept stores, well-known chains, all within a stone’s throw of one another in low-traffic or pedestrianised streets.

Hasselt is tasty

And Hasselt is the place to go for delicious food and drink. From breakfast to dinner, there is no shortage of places to go for a tasty bite. For a drink in the open air you should head for the Fruitmarkt, the Grote Markt or Kolonel Dusartplein. Looking for a hip hidden gem? Then you need to be near Dorpstraat in Centrum-West.

Green spaces in the city

Those who are looking for nature don't need to go far either. The Herkenrode Abbey site, the Japanese garden, De Wijers, Kiewit nature reserve and more are all within cycling distance of the town centre.
