De “oude winning” is located in the Green Hesbania.

Riemst is known as ' the mergelland of Flanders ', the marl caves of Zichen-Zussen-Bolder and Kanne (one of the most beautiful villages of Flanders) are the main attractions of the municipality.

 

But also the Wine Castle of Genoelselderen, the Water Castle in Millen and the numerous square farmhouses attest to a rich past.

Fort Eben-Emael is definitely worth a visit.

 

Historic cities such as Maastricht and Tongeren are also very close.

 

Tongeren, the oldest city of Belgium, will not only impress you being a treasure of cultural-historical heritage. You will feel immediately at home here, thanks to the relaxed atmosphere, the cosy terraces, the versatile range of shopping attractions (Sunday shopping every first Sunday of the month), the weekly Sunday antiques market (one of the largest of the Benelux) and the many events. There is also the park of Eastern Jeker, "The Kevie", which is a beautiful nature reserve that even by the WWF is regarded as very valuable.

 

Maastricht, one of the oldest cities in The Netherlands, possesses monuments from all historical periods, the historic centre invites you to endless strolling. In 2008, Maastricht was crowned as best shopping city of the Netherlands.

 

Bilzen, a historic town at the Demer in our close proximity, is best known for the landcommandery Alden Biesen, today a multifunctional cultural centre of the Flemish Government, where events are regularly organised.

 

Hasselt is undoubtedly the capital of taste. Try some of the trendy shops, pedestrian areas, cosy passages … or speculoos (gingerbread), Jenever (Gin), restaurants, cultural spectacle pieces and fashionable museums. Whether you like sweet, salty, bitter or spicy, Hasselt always tastes for more. 

 

Liège, is a city of parks and gardens, with an important monumental patrimony. Liège is above all a city stay, where the river constitutes the soul of the city, where the alleys, stairs, court yards and quiet dead end streets, are certainly worth exploring. Liège is also rich in remarkable museums that earn an even bigger acknowledgement.

 

Aachen is situated right next to the “Three-Country Point” Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium. The city finds its roots in a large European past. It was - and still is - the city of Charlemagne. This results in Aachen being both historical and cultural a direct hit.

It is a pleasant shopping city, widely known for its Christmas market!

 

Multiple cities such as St-Truiden, Genk and Maaseik are at close distance and definitely worth a visit.

 

In Hasbania, nature is at its best, not the least at the (close located) banks of the river Jeker and the Albert Canal.

 

The Voerregion is also just a stone's throw away; we find the same wavy landscape as in Mergelland. It is a peaceful, unspoilt natural area and a paradise for walkers and cyclists.

Limburg is the bicycle paradise! First of all thanks to the unique cycle path network; more than 2000 km cycling pleasure from node to node. These qualitative routes, also surrounding The Oude Winning, are the biggest Limburgian asset.

 

Rather walking?

You experience Limburg best step by step. In the sanctuaries you fully merge with the environment. The Hasbanian green spots lead you through signposted routes to the hidden gems. Educational tours are possible. Wherever you get, the horeca outlets, rest and picnic areas are never far away.
