Kempen in Flanders
The Kempen, also called Kempenland or Campine, is the region east of Antwerp. Actually, the area is a large chain of nature reserves. Small picturesque villages are interspersed with forests and fields of corn or grain. In the Kempen abbeys, often in fairytale-like surroundings, monks live and work, such as in the Westmalle Trappist Abbey, where you can walk the Trappist path and then enjoy a delicious glass of Trappist beer. This area is also great for cycling. There are more than 2000 km of relatively flat cycling paths and there is always a nice cycling route that suits you and your family. A day in the special village of Baarle-Nassau (NL) and Baarle-Hertog (BE) is of course also on the programme.
