Cheers to the blossoms
There is no better place to show off your new spring look than at a trendy blossom bar. The BelOrta Bloesembar in Sint-Truiden is one of those places where spring vibes come standard. From the end of March to mid-May, this unique pop-up bar in the heart of the beautiful Haspengouw region welcomes you for a well-deserved break after a bike ride or hike in the surrounding blossom valley. The perfect pitstop for a refreshing glass of wine or some delicious local specialties. Find more blossom bars here.
Cycling or walking among the blossoms
Discover the enchanting blossom fields of Haspengouw from up close during a hike or a bike ride. Our personal favourites? A magical stroll through the orchard of Alden Biesen, or a relaxing walk in the fruit valleys of Grootloon. One of the best ways to really take in the views and the region’s rich fruit and syrup heritage is during the 'Van fruit tot stroop' biking route in Borgloon. Looking for more hiking or biking routes? You’ll find lots of great alternatives at visitlimburg and visithaspengouw.
Blossom cruising in style
In the mood for an even more unique experience? Cruise along the blossom fields on an Italian Vespa or in an old-school deux-chevaux, or – if you’d rather go electric – ride along the orchards on an electric kick scooter or a green golf cart: the perfect mode of transportation for an out-of-the-box blossom adventure!
The most beautiful blossom snaps
A snapshot in the middle of a blossom orchard is a classic, of course, but the blossom valley has got lots of other unique photo opportunities up its sleeve. For the most beautiful blossom snaps, don’t miss these Insta-proof stops along the way: the former syrup factory, the 'Reading between the lines' see-through church, Helsh(ea)ven, and the 'Untitled #158' artwork. Or: go for a magical blossom photo shoot at one of these fairy-tale castles: Landcommanderij Alden Biesen, Château de la Motte, and the castle of Ordingen.
We hope to welcome you soon at Maasmechelen Village, the perfect starting point for your blossom adventure!
