There are 3 walking paths starting in front of the Ravenhof leading into the Moretusbos. Each of the 3 paths has its own color. Just follow the marked posts and they will bring you to some lovely parts of the forest.
Red: "Het pronkstuk van de jonker" 6 km
Blue: "Geldbergpad" 4 km
Yellow: "Het Smokkelpad" 3 km
Have a look at my travelogue for more impressions of Moretusbos.
Favorite thing: When you walk the lane in front of the Ravenhof, you will come across a lovely little building on a sandy hill. This is the 'Gloriette'. A teahouse, built by the Moretus family in 1768. It is said that they also built a long underground corridor leading from the castle to the teahouse.
The castle in rococo style dates from 1400. Since 1679, it was the home of the Moretus family, a wealthy family of printers. They were related to the most famous printer of Antwerp, Christopher Plantin.
Since 1978, the castle is owned by the town of Stabroek. The castle, on the list of protected monuments, is now used for social and cultural events.
Back in the 18th century, the Moretus family had the grounds around the castle transformed from bare dry heath ground to a beautiful forest with lanes and platforms.
Nowadays, it's a nice place for walking.
Favorite thing: Although, the castle and forest are off the beaten path, you will not return home thirsty. On the grounds of the castle, there is a tavern "'t Koetshuis" that serves good Antwerp beer on draught ;-)
