Travel Tips for Genk

BOKRIJK --- OPEN AIR MUSEUM

by LoriPori

"OPEN AIR MUSEUM"

Saturday, July 30, 2005
Hans and I, along with Johan and his lovely wife Wies, spent a wonderful day at BOKRIJK an OPEN AIR MUSEUM ( Het Openluchtmuseum ) located near Genk, Belgium.
In the 19th Century Open Air Museum, you can experience how Belgians of yesteryear lived, worked and what they did for relaxation and to pass the time.
Spreading over an area of more than 60 hectares, it is separated into three distinct areas - Kempen Village -- Haspengouw Village and East & West Flanders.
So come along with us and we will give you a tour of this place geared to the young and the young at heart!!

"CANDLE MAKER"

Although it looks like Hansie is in Jail, this was actually the CANDLE-MAKERS HOUSE. A Volunteer was inside, showing us how they made honey-comb candles. He had a thin sheet of bee's wax and cut it into two triangles. Then he inserted the long wick from top to bottom and then rolled it with his fingers until it became a cone-shaped candle which he claimed would burn for hours.

"KAPEL ZEPPEREN"

What is a community without a church. KAPEL ZEPPEREN is a lovely little stone building with plain windows and very tiny inside. Even a small cemetery was beside the church.

BOKRIJK

by Patje

Open air museum of rural architecture, Bokrijk, Belgium.

A number of important examples of rural architecture in Belgium have been preserved and moved to an open air museum at Bokrijk (near Hasselt). Several of these have had their external wall coverings removed so that one can see the structure of their frames. Iron nails were seldom used. Posts and beams were joined with mortise and tenon joints, which were pegged with wooden dowels. (The early American colonists called these "treenails'.) Each joint is custom made; there were no standard measurements either in thickness of the beams or in length.


Opening hours:
The Open Air Museum is open from 30 March 'till 27 October. The cottages stay open 'till 18.00 hrs (17.00 hrs in October)
The rest of the park is open to the public free of charge sunrise to sunset, all year round.
