The beautiful campsite and the people we met there

It was super hot, so we’ve been sweating very hard

Itinerary Overview

We started our trip by taking the train in the beautiful Central Station of Antwerp. We got of the train at Munkzwalm where our trip started. We went from Zwalm to Sint-Denijs-Boekel and spent the night at the campsite in Sint-Maria-Horebeke. There is a meadow where you are allowed to set up your tent. The next day we continued our trip through Maarkedal, Maarke-Kerkem, Muziekbos and eventually arrived in Ronse. From there we took the train to Gent and spent our last night in my friend’s apartment.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have loved a longer hike, but in the area there are not that much free camping sites. The one we used was amazing though.

  • How was the food?

    In Ronse, at the end of the hike, you can have a drink or eat something. Before that there are not that many possibilities, so bring your own food.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Don’t hesitate to ask the local people if you can fill your water bottle. There usually very friendly and might give you more than water :)

  • Packing tips?

    Make sure you have all the essential camping gear with you

  • Transportation Tips?

    You can get there easily by train!

  • Booking details?

    No booking needed, you can just decide last-minute to do this trip when the weather is good, just like we did!
