  • It was first a beautiful hiking area, where you can relax. The current state of affairs is that it is tainted by a new resort to be built, a lot of changes that will allow the nice weather of us is taken away. It is now the time to enjoy some of it.

  • It was one of the most beautiful nature and hiking areas of this part of the country. Beautiful hiking trails in different lengths and weights with stunning views over the park and the surrounding area. Can be combined with Maasmechelen Village. But one found it necessary for the rest to go disrupt by there to develop construction plans for a large wellness complex with catering, villas, car parks etc. A part of the park (near Maasmechelen Village) has been turned into a yard, but this seems to be just the beginning. Why should such a thing happen here, precisely why a piece of unique nature not leave it alone? A few years back I would have judged Connecterra certainly with ' excellent ', I'm afraid that soon only ' moderately ' or ' bad ' will remain.

  • I went running in this park twice, as I was staying in a nearby hotel. Nice walk with some lakes, on the spot of old coal mines. Once also 3 roes crossed my way, very nice  more »

  • Lovely quiet place with some hills and great views. There are several routes from 4 till 12 km. All routes marked as usual so it's impossible to get lost. There is great kids playground and small cafe with choice of local beers. Cycling is not allowed there and dogs should be on the lead at all times, so it's really safe and quiet place. There are not many tourists around so you can enjoy nature.
  • Great place to have a good walk. The various walking paths are well marked. The views from the heaps over the surrounding area are nice and worth the climb. There is a big playground for children right after the entrance. It's a shame though that they are building a wellness centre in the middle of the park.
  • Used to be a very nice place for walking and jogging. Part of the first national nature park of Belgium. But now the hotel next door are building a wellness centre smack in the middle of the domain. Several walking trails have been severed by a new concrete road with no indication of where they continue. Part of a walking trail is now along this concrete road. The peace and quiet was disturbed by the drone of a generator. Once finished, there's going to be a constant stream of shuttle buses taking people to the centre. In short, another natural place ruined for profit. Do NOT pay the €3 entrance. Go around the national park, go in for free, and enjoy the unperturbed nature there.
  • Great walking area: hills, forest and water in a man made landscape.
  • Great place to be in contact with the nature.
