In honor of our Belgian National Holiday, I made a traditional Belgian Beer Stew with fries and a chicory salad.
Starting in Achouffe, you can do a beautiful 8km hike. It is a round trip that can be extended to around 12k.
In the beginning, you have to cross a little river but because it is not deep, this is fairly easy to do: take off your shoes and socks, roll up your pants and just go.
You follow the river constantly while walking in between the trees. At the end, there are some ups and downs but the most part is flat.
Belgium is famous for its beers. I am not a big fan of beers but my boyfriend is a real beer lover. Although I don’t drink a lot of beer, I find the whole brewing process very interesting, so visiting a brewery is something I really like. In the past, I already visited a few breweries, often as part of a brewery class during my education. But in Belgium, there is no shortage of breweries that you can visit.
An excellent idea for enjoying the outdoors at the Belgian Coast is a visit to The Zwin, a nature Parc with a lot to offer. The Zwin dunes and polders are perfect for walking, cyclists, or horseback riding. Bird spotters are in the right place because of the thousands of birds that land at the Zwin to breed, hibernate or look for food. Especially the stork stand out when you enter Zwin Nature Parc.
