A cycle trail near Bokrijk open air museum includes a stretch called Cycle through Water. It takes you on a metal bridge sunk below a pond so you are literally under the water.
The short stretch through water provides an unusual view of ducks floating past at eye level.
The route is signed from the Bokrijk car park as Fietsen door het water.
It forms part of a project to attract cyclists to Limburg province by creating exciting new experiences, such as cycling through the tree tops in the Bosland nature reserve and cycling through the Kanne caves.
Cycling through Water is located between cycle points 98 and 91 on the fietsnet.be routeplanner.
