© Lander Loeckx

Tourism Flemish Brabant recently launched a brand-new walking brochure, Walking in Flemish Brabant, which includes a premium selection of 24 walking routes that include handy maps and tips.

The tourist office is constantly developing new initiatives to guide the many internationals living in and around Brussels on their quest to find great ways to spend their free time. This time, they challenge you to pull on a pair of sturdy walking shoes and reconnect with nature.

There’s nothing humdrum or ordinary about the offer of signposted walking routes in Flemish Brabant. There are over 3,200 km of signposted walks and walking networks in the province. Top that off with loads of long-distance trails, GR-routes and digital walking networks and you’re sure to find something to strike your fancy.

Tourism Flemish Brabant assembled a selection of these walks in their newest walking brochure, Walking in Flemish Brabant. An impressive 24 walking routes – spread evenly throughout the province guarantee a fantastic walking experience for experienced long – distance walkers and those just interested in a relaxing, get-back-to-nature jaunt.

The walks are bundled at the back of the brochure as a set of practical, perforated fact sheets that you can take along on your outing. It even includes a tiny journal, where you can log your hiking experience (date, star rating, the weather or maybe even an unexpected encounter?).

‘The brochure is the ideal companion to escape the hustle & bustle of the city. Imagine rolling hills, mighty forests, babbling brooks and lush fields, punctuated with hamlets and towns full of local delicacies, world heritage, architecture, history and an interactive experience centre or two. And that all at just a stone’s throw away from Brussels,’ says Tourism Representative Monique Swinnen.

The brochure is available for order in English on: www.tourismflemishbrabant.be/walkingbrochure

Organisations with close ties to the international community in and around Brussels (e.g. employers, international schools, relocation agents, etc.) can request a larger batch of copies from toerisme@vlaamsbrabant.be to share within their expat communities.
