Wonderful domain with a massive, free playground that your kids will enjoy for hours. New areas with a small maze and a fun circuit for older kids.

Different resaurants with plenty of food and drink options.

Large area for a leisure walk. Well maintained paths.

Open air museum (entrance fee).

Parking costs 5 Euros per vehicle for the day.

Our son had a fall on the playground and the first aid staff was very helpful - they are located in the middle of the playground. How useful!

The museum did not catch my imagination. The houses are old and dark and the interiors are full of old and dirty stuff. We did like the beautiful nature, the great playground for kids ( maybe the biggest in belgium). So forget about the museum and take a nice walk in the area, visit the arboretum and playground.

Great place to spend the day. Enjoyed going back into time and admiring the architecture of centuries ago. The place has amazing potential but it has been let go a little. It is in need of some updated signs and explanations. But even with that the price was well worth the experience.

1,5 hour drive from Brussels in a large nature park (Park Midden Limburg). Good infrastructure for biking. The open air museum has a great tradition. It shows the way of life in Belgium from the 17th century to early 20th century. You can visit old houses (more than 100) and see craftsmen at work.Nice walkways. Because of the wide surface, it never looks crowdy. It takes about 3 hours to make the tour. Restaurants and (clean) sanitary infrastructure are available. To do also with children from 6 years on. Information in FR-EN-DE on the website bokrijk.be
