Hechtel Things to Do
The begijnenvijvers are a couple of ponds. People go there to do some fishing.
It is also a great place to do some walks. There are some routes indicated on the plan at the entrance. My favorite one is 9km walk which is indicated by a red triangle. This one goes through many meadows and woods.Very relaxing.
You can also just go over there for a drink at the "Begijntje"Related to:
- Hiking and Walking
Also at the "in de brand" region there's is a small muddy pond called "Kattepoelke".
People say that in the earlier days people drowned the cats of witches here.
When you are doing the white walk you'll pass this little hill with stairs called the 'Trepkesberg".
Hechtel isn't really Las Vegas. There are not many places to go out. One good place is Pauls wereld. Untill the end of september 2005 there will still be a restaurant, but this will end in october. From then on there will be more gigs . As well local bands as international bands play here.
If you wanna know what's playing just send me a mail or surf to www.paulswereld.tk (keep in mind that the site isn't always up to date.)
Too late the place is closed now, but the pictures are still fun
Dress Code: ABSOLUTELY NO DRESSCODE
Favorite thing: The VVV kantoor (vvv office) is the place where you can get all the tourist information in Belgium.
