Starting at Herkenrode Abbey, this cycle route leads you round the pond landscape of De Wijers. Discover a green oasis of calm, and a variety of heritage and art along the way. The ponds were originally designed for fish farming by order of Herkenrode Abbey, and the Zonhoven fish farms remain operational to this day. The coal track takes you through De Teut-Ten Haagdoorn Nature Reserve before descending towards ‘Cycling through Water’ in Bokrijk. From there, ride back towards Hasselt, where street art brightens up the streetscape.
