Cycling experiences Through the moorlands Through the woods Mining heritage

Artfully crafted locomotives at As Station are the starting point for a cycling tour through the Hoge Kempen National Park. It first heads through shady forests in the direction of Waterschei. The old mining site, now known as Thor Park, is a green area with an amazing industrial heritage. Through Genk, it goes to Kattevennen, where you can get to know our solar system at the Cosmodrome and along the surrounding trails. We leave the Milky Way on quiet forest trails heading towards Zutendaal. Further on, the landscape opens up completely at Cycling through Heathland. You can enjoy wonderful vistas as you cycle across the Mechelse Heide. The purple-blooming heather adds to the splendour in August and September. And it becomes even more enchanting at sunset…
