Why Jerom?

Let’s get

for action?

Sometimes you just want to be lazy and sleep in. But perhaps you are more interested  in a bit of action? In that case we have a wide range of activities in and close to Kalmthout. Step into the shoes of a soldier and walk the trenches from WOI in the vast Kalmthoutse Heide. Explore the surrounding area with a bike or climb in the Klimbos Brabantse Wal until your fingers turn blue. But it doesn’t have to stop there…

Extra tip: Just beside Hotel Jerom you will find Kalmthout’s tourist information center. There you will find many more fun activities to do.



The Trenches

The natural beauty of Mastenbos in Kapellen houses a treasure of heritage: the German trenches from 1917 with several bunkers, intact.

Climbing forest “Brabantse Wal”

A gigantic forest, “Klimbos Brabantse Wal”. Just a half an hour from Hotel Jerom you shall find at least 8 climbing adventures. The whole family can have a go thanks to the different levels of difficulty and heights ranging from 3 to 18 meters.

A visit to Klimbos takes approximately 3.5 hours to complete, including instructions.

Tip: It is located in a public forest, so you can just walk, cycle or hire a mountain bike to explore the vicinity  in an active way.

Climbing forrest Brabantse Wal


An old, military railway line is now the décor for a unique and fun family experience. You hire a rail-bike and you and your whole family explore the environment in a special way.

Tip: The Picnikfabrik (Picnic-Factory) delivers a picnic to the starting point of the rail-biking-trail in Kapellen or at the Perron Noord in Brasschaat. Each picnicker receives something extra from Perron Noord.
