A visit to Heythuyzen is well of the beaten paths
Not many tourists or travellers will cross this place, but holding my roots I found it an obligation to myself to have it in my lists and promote it at least a little bit. The village itself is indeed not that attractive (especially after what they did to the place in recent times), but the "Leu-dal" national nature reserve is very nice for nature lovers or people that like to make a hike in a beautiful forest.
Horses and "Heytse"
Heytse has something with horses. This region has something with horses. According to the many maneges and riding schools that are to be found here, people have a long bound with mankinds best working friend, the horse. In front of the manucipality hall a statue of a white horse emphasises this bound, though I also heared the rumor about a legend that involves a witch that got scared away by a white horse eventually.
