How to reach

Hiking - Beverbeekse Heide 11.7 km

Description >

This beautiful circle walk of 11.7 km across the Beverbeekse Heide runs between Warmbeek and Hamont-Achel. Many place names around Hamont-Achel still allude to the heath that used to be everywhere. A beautiful example is the Beverbeekse Heide. These heathlands were only forested and planted with pine trees during the second half of the last century. Did the heath completely disappear? No, not entirely. The heath still rears its head here and there along forest edges and in clearings. And these brave remnants have recently gained a lot more space through natural connections.

De Grevenbroekmolen - Hamont-Achel

In the municipality of Hamont-Achel is the Grevenbroekmolen, or 'Het Mulke', an underwater water mill on the Warmbeek, built in 1770. She served for grinding grain and buckwheat. In 1774 an oil mill was placed opposite this mill. In 1920 she had already been shut down, while the thrust was moved in 1973 and a bridge was built. The building is still present, although the watercourse has disappeared.

Beverbeek Heath

Many place names in Hamont-Achel still refer to the heath that used to be commonplace. A beautiful example is the Beverbeekse Heide. It wasn't until the second half of the last century that the heathlands here were converted to pine forest. Did the heath completely disappear? No, not entirely. Here and there, at the edges of the forest and in clearings, it survives. Those brave remnants have recently gained a lot more space through natural connections.
