Haspengouw

Back

Haspengouw is situated in the south of Limburg and is mainly known for its fruit. The mainly rolling landscape is ideally suited to cultivating fruit and wine-growing. This region also has a very rich history, traces of which you can still see today.

Blossoms everywhere!

The spring, when everything is in bloom, is the perfect time to come to Haspengouw. You always have to wait a little before knowing exactly when the blossom time will be, but that makes it all the better and more natural. As a rough guide, the best chance is probably in April.
