Entrance gate Mechelse Heide – Maasmechelen

The walking gate par excellence. Numerous routes lead the walker through the vast moors of the Hoge Kempen National Park. The heather is in full bloom from mid-August to mid-September. Some routes make you climb hard. The reward? Views as far as the Netherlands and in clear weather even as far as Germany and the High Fens. With the walking map you can easily combine routes or parts of walks. New: the Zandloperpad is a 1.5 km long, paved path that introduces you to the typical heath and dune landscape of the Hoge Kempen. Along the way you pass the characteristic biotopes of this landscape. The path is paved so that wheelchair users and young families with prams can also enjoy the beautiful landscape.
