Open Air Museum Bokrijk, Genk

Breathe in the fragrant countryside at Open Air Museum Bokrijk, an open-air museum that immerses you in the country's rural history.

The houses are refurbished; you can tour them freely on your own. Head to the arboretum next to the museum, home to local varieties of trees that stand tall over the red brick buildings and a huge play area. The play area provides entertainment for children, while a restaurant on site serves local recipes. The parking fee and admission fee are charged separately.

  • A day of bokrijk. With a fun and interesting walk through the old villages you can definitely fill a whole day. Also, there are regular day or year themes.
