Are you partial to imposing castles, undulating pastures and breathtaking panoramas? Time to fix a date: you’re going to take on the green suburbs of our capital. Up and down the hills through the country of Bruegel, hops, grapes and chicory.
Cycle past the ruins of old fortresses, large farmsteads and elegant castle estates, each a striking witness to the former wealth of the region. And that wealth is still here, for the Payottenland is a succession of hill crests, fertile valleys and brooks that meander through the far-flung panoramas.
Pause for a moment in Meise and imagine yourself in the jungle in the impressive Botanic Garden, make a pit stop at the church of Sint-Anna-Pede or enjoy a picnic in the park of Tervuren. Have you had your fill of cycling for today? Enjoy the last rays of sun on a terrace, with a well-deserved lambic, Gueuze or cherry beer. Your very good health!
