The Ballasthoeve is an old 'brown' decorated pub with two garden terraces and a playground for the little ones. You can enjoy a delicious Belgian beer and/or coffee with Limburgian flan. It is located in the Limburg Kempen, synonymous with lots of forest, green and nature. You can also spend the night in the group accommodation, the cottage or on the mini camping.

The Ballasthoeve is a proud Host of Bosland!

As a Host of Bosland I am part of a network of entrepreneurs who inform visitors and guests about Bosland: the largest adventure forest of Flanders. This gigantic nature reserve of 5137 ha in Northern Limburg stretches over the municipalities Hechtel-Eksel, Pelt, Peer and Lommel and consists mainly of forests, heathland, grasslands and brook valleys.

Bosland preserves and develops its beautiful and qualitative nature, but also opens it as much as possible to the general public. Sustainable development is a priority: Bosland creates dynamism from green. Would you like more information about all that there is to experience? I am happy to help.
