Discover green Kessel-Lo on foot
sam. 1 décembre à 10:00
Who’s up for a walk? There are some pretty green spots very close to Leuven city. Well, maybe less green by December, but you know what I mean. A good hike in the fresh air is a perfect way to start the weekend. Our hike will bring us through the park ‘Provinciedomein Kessel-Lo’ up to the hills of ‘Kesselberg’ and back down by the Abbey of Vlierbeek. It’s a 7 kilometer walk, so I estimate to be back at noon. However, for those who’re up to it, we could have a drink (lunch) at the pub of the Abbey of Vlierbeek. This place is at the very end of the hike. I am Belgian, born and raised just outside of Leuven and apart from a 4 year gap in Chicago living in Leuven for about 20 years. I’d love to connect and show you ‘our’ Kessel-Lo. Where to meet?
We will meet at the 3 big rocks at the entrance of the Provinciedomein Kessel-Lo. My name is Ine and it's easy to recognize me with my short hair. If needed, my phone number is[masked]. What to wear?
Please consider the weather and wear waterproof comfortable shoes. Don’t forget a rain jacket and your water bottle. How to get there?
There are multiple entrances at the Provinciedomein but Google Maps will normally guide you to the right one. This entrance is at the corner of the Beemdenstraat and the Leopold Ruelensstraat.
The fastest way to come to our meeting point from Leuven city is by bike! It’s only a 5 minute ride from the railway station.
If you come by car you can drive up to the parking lot and pay a fee of 2€ which helps maintain the park (if you park your car in the streets you have to put your blue parking card for a maximum stay of 2 hours).
If you come by bus you can take bus 2 at platform 7 at the bus station in Leuven. Bus 2 leaves at 9.40 and you get off after 4 stops at ‘L. Ruelensstraat’. It’s only a 5 minute ride. From your stop you have a 5 minute walk through the L. Ruelensstraat to reach the entrance of the Provinciedomein.
By foot it’s a 1,5km hike from the bus station.
Please, reach out in the comments if you like to connect with others to go together to the meeting point. Tot binnenkort!
