    The Genval Lake

    by cadzand Updated Jun 24, 2007
    Genval lake

    The Genval Lake is located on both of the villages Overijse and Genval (part of Rixensart). The (unvisible haha) border of the provinces of Flemish and Walloon Brabant goes straight through this Lake. It's a nice place to relax. It's quite easy to walk around the lake. Joung and old like it here. There are some nice restaurants (belgian, italian, african, chinese cuisine)

    A brand new and very nice biking route 27,250 km through the Zoniën forest. It starts at the Hoeilaart Sports hall near the Nero-café and leads you into the forest along the Groenendael train station (from the Nero-strips do you know ?) through 4300 ha everchanging woods.
    You'll find the road book and a map - in flemish - at the website.

    Wintertime in Overijse

    Zoniën forest is an ideal place for hiking, biking and horseriding all year long. There are even separated paths for each of those sports,
    There are many well indicated lanes which lead you throughout the Forest on the territory of Overijse, Hoeilaart, Tervuren, St. Genesius Rode (Rhode St. Genèse), Watermaal-Bosvoorde (Watermael-Boitsfort)
    If you feel like getting lost, buy yourself a Zoniën Forest map in a good library and there you go..

    The Justus Lipsius Walk

    Overijse nature

    This is a 9 km walking path through the lovely village center along the most important buildings and then further on through the surrounding fields, leading you in and around the IJse-valley, which gave its name to Overijse. If you're a nature-lover, this is a must-do.

    Equipment: If the weather has been rough with heavy rain, you may need boots or good hiking shoes as some smaller parts of the path through the fields may be a little marshy.
