This is a nice park for a walk in the french style Gardens. Never crowded. Well maintained. Wooded areas, large open areas and nicely landscaped horticultural areas.

Estaminet De Maxx

Reviewed By shelbyh0ney - Shrewsbury, United Kingdom

If you are in the area definitely visit. The food is simply gorgeous. I had (in simple terms) a fish pie and my partner had the bone steak with green peppercorn sauce. Both were to die for - perfectly cooked! We even squeezed in dessert - magnificent!

Le Petit Train du Bonheur

Reviewed By Ray S - Scawby Brook

For all rail/steam enthusiasts this little narrow gauge line is a unique one off in my experience, truly Belgian, and one of only 4 preserved rail facilities in Belgium I am told.
Run by Volunteers it is a sheer delight to travel in the open windowed coaches from the old (now closed ) rail station in Rebecq (with car parking & availability for coaches to stay also) opposite the platform whence the little train departs. No shelter on the Platform for bad weather days and running only at 14.30:16.00:17.30 Dimanches it is an unusual experience as the lineside greenery enhances a rural tranquillity until the end of the line where the train reverses to the intermediate station where the locomotive runs around the train allowing time for passengers to get refreshments and souvenirs before continuing their journey. I note here that I have allowed time for people with Mobility problems, as I have myself so might be judged excessive by people without reduced Mobility. I note also that I found my fellow users most courteous and friendly even though not sharing a common language with them all, smiling faces and a helping hand where evrywhere to be found, not always so today

I'd last visited this place about 15 years ago, and it's changed a lot since then. I can't really comment on the welfare issues for the animals other than to say that they mostly looked happy, and the fact that many of the animals here are breeding must be a good sign. Certainly the surroundings are very nice for the humans - a variety of buildings, architecture styles, etc. all themed with the animals in that area. There are lots of toilets, food stands and places to take a rest, which are all required since there is a lot to do and you will walk a long way if you want to visit all the animals. There are places where you can eat your own picnic as well, and some big play parks for smaller children.
The highlights are the big animals like pandas, tigers, elephants, gorillas, rhinos, etc. and these are all well presented and visible to visitors. But there are also nice exhibits of birds, insects, fish, etc. and the opportunity to get very close to some animals like squirrel monkeys, lemurs, fish, etc.
Overall it's a very pleasant visit and all ages will find things of interest here. It can get very busy, so be prepared for this. Arriving or leaving at busy times will take a while, particularly leaving the site.

Hallerbos – ‘'The Blue Forest’'

Reviewed By Jerry T - New York

Absolutely terrific place to jog. There are miles of trails conditioned for walking, jogging or biking. The larger trails have street names but the majority of the trails has no tagging at all, so make sure you plan your way before using the map, it could get confusing, and a wrong turn could add a couple of km to your journey.
Drive to the East entrance, where there is ample parking, at the 8 way ( yes 8 major trails leave from one point), but plan ahead as all the access roads are not always open in the weekend.
Unique is also the separation of horse trails from ten others. You can catch glimpses of gracious horse riders here and there without having to worry you will share the same space with your baby carriage and a giant trotting animal.
If you are coming from the South or West there are other parking areas as well.

Reviewed By Bart V - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Cycling in the Flemish Ardennes is great, but it will be super hen you climed 'The wall of Geraardsbergen'. Fight yourself up on killing 'kasseien' and expierence what so may experienced before you: it can always be worse...
There is one great benefit: op top of 'de muur' you'll find not only a beautifull chapel with an astonishing view, but also a great restaurant with everything a worn out cyclist needs.

Sportoase

Reviewed By AnnefromBelgium111 - Brussels, Belgium

The Antwerp based string of several Sportoase venues is rapidly spreading in Belgium... and in doing sso is revolutionizing the whole field of classic (and often boring and cold) swimming pools. I am sure they are now ,boostingoveral Belgian health!.I am a fan of the Aqua complex in Braine and in Halle. I mainly enjoy the relaxing warm water pool (massage jets, hopping in the fun little 'river' and finishing in hammam or (bio or salt) sauna. And in Braine I love the bubble jets, hot wall and a bit of 'ice' therapy. All Oases differ slightly, have a wealth of good ideas and courses (aquagym, kids swimming lessons). I love the families splashing around together happily, seniors like me working on their condition, and watching the group of tiny babies fearlessly swimming under water is just a heavenly experience. I cannot speak about the fitness but theit equipmant looks fine. I am also a fan of their taverna: a good glowing coffee, and the most fabulous parma ham and pesto Sandwich in the world - the Portuguese (?) owner makes the pesto himself!!!! Charming wife too.
