With its 154 m, the Kemmelberg is the highest peak in Flanders and perhaps the most famous 'mountain' in the Westhoek and West Flanders. Various hiking trails cross the entire domain and offer you beautiful panoramas over West and French Flanders.
You walk on unpaved paths, along forest, meadows, orchards and even vineyards.
The visitors’ centre is housed in the old rectory, just opposite the church of Kemmel. It is the gateway to the adjacent provincial domain Kemmelberg. You can explore the domain via the beautiful, signposted walk of 8 km that starts at the visitors’ centre in Kemmel.
Purple bluebells bloom profusely along the flanks of the Kemmelberg in Heuvelland in April and May. These flowers bloom for only a few weeks each year. A wonderful spring period to explore our forests. On the trails of course.
Every SATURDAY in July and August, we surprise you with different and fun activities. For example: a storyteller, mountain aperitif, picnic, nature creation, adventurous climbing or a musical intermezzo.
An exciting annual program for young and old regularly puts the provincial domain actively in the spotlight.
