Wildlife Sanctuary

Areas where you can listen to the sounds of nature undisturbed are becoming very scarce and vulnerable. ‘Kempen~Broek’ has been recognised as a Wildlife Sanctuary, a place where silence still rules.

Silence is the carrier of sounds, words and thoughts. Nature fills silence with natural sounds. This natural concert is very relaxing. Silence ensures that people can recuperate and that they feel healthier.
Areas where you can listen to the sounds of nature undisturbed are scarce and vulnerable. A silent landscape is synonymous for an authentic and beautiful landscape. To care for these landscapes, Flanders, the province ‘Limburg, the Regionaal Landschap Kempen en Maasland’ and the communities have joined forces. In ‘Kempen~Broek’, the Wildlife Sanctuary received a three star quality label. A huge moral boost for silence and a source of inspiration for the ‘Zwarte Put’ on the border between ‘Zutendaal, Lanaken and Bilzen’.
To feel inspired by silence, you can join the excursion “Re-energize in ‘Kempen~Broek’” or an excursion led by one of our “Silent guides”. (+32 11 26 54 53)
