Did you know that our first king was not the first to rule Belgium?
Shortly before him, a regent was appointed, who ruled the country until a king was selected and appointed.
And that was ... baron Erasme Louis Surlet de Chokier.

At that time he was not only the first regent of Belgium, but also the mayor of Gingelom and so there are many places here linked to this important historical person.
The Chokier Trail (3,8 km) guides you in the footsteps of baron Surlet de Chokier.

You pass the castle of Gingelom, where Belgium's first head of state lived, as well as the Kamerijkhoeve, where he raised his merino sheep. During asparagus season, you can feast on Regalys green asparagus here.
