Hiking : Pietersheim

We definitely recommend the short hike through the castle park. With its deciduous forest, its avenues and its orchards, it has a very different character then the drier ‘Hoge Kempen’. Almost all of the hiking routes are situated inside the National Park, sometimes significant climbing is necessary due to the differences in height of the terrain.

There are 8 well-marked hiking routes with the following starting points:

- Gateway ‘Pietersheim, Neerharenweg 12, B-3620 Lanaken’

- Starting point Campus ‘St. Barbara, Bessemerstraat 478, B-3620 Lanaken’

- Starting point ‘Bessemer’, crossing between ‘Bessemerstraat and Gijzenveldstraat, B-3620 Lanaken’

- Starting point ‘Hostellerie La Butte aux Bois, Paalsteenlaan 90, B-3620 Lanaken’
