About

This may surprise many locals, but the city boasts a beautiful nature reserve: Bourgoyen-Ossemeersen is a 230-hectare flood area that provides a vital migratory winter habitat for hundreds of species of birds. These ‘floralies in the wild’ can be explored along three attractively laid-out walking routes. Find out everything you need to know about this green area at the visitors’ centre.
