Limburg has the reputation of being “the most green” province in Flanders. And to top it all off, now we have the Hoge Kempen National Park. A large natural area, where you can wander through nature endlessly.

The Hoge Kempen National Park, in the Belgian province of Limburg, is a unique nature area, covering more than 5700 ha of woodlands and heathland, all protected and managed by the Flemish Government’s Agency for Nature and forestry . The area stretches out over the municipalities of Dilsen-Stokkem, Maasmechelen, Zutendaal, Lanaken, Genk and As.

It is a “natural success story” for the non-profit organization Regionaal Landschap Kempen en Maasland, who are mostly know for they junction network for cyclists.

The National Park officially kicked off on March 23rd, 2006. In the meantime, 5 gateways have been developed as starting areas for a visit to this enchanting area.

The not-for-profit organization Regionaal Landschap Kempen en Maasland aims to develop durable, nature orientated tourism in and around this natural area. The balance between NATURE – PEOPLE – TOURISM is their main focus.
