Kalmthoutse Heide
Pure nature

Our pride, the Kalmthoutse Heide. A vast landscape of 6000 hectares which borders ‘Grenspark-Kalmthoutse Heide’ provides a unique experience for  nature lovers. In this nature reserve you shall see marshland, sand plains and pine forests. You can spend hours wandering around the Kalmthoutse Heide and you shall still discover new things. There are a lot of marked walking and cycling routes that you can take, but you can also follow your own intuition!

Every season the Kalmthoutse Heide seems to transform,  but the top season is half way through August to half way through September. The little flowers from the heather provide the Kalmthoutse Heide with a magical, purple carpet, a phenomenon that you must come and see for yourself.



Bosbar – Bar in the woods

Bosbar is a pop-up bar with homy terraces and a play jungle for the kids which is only open during Summer! (from 17th of May – September)

Situated at only 400 metres from Hotel Jerom and the main entrance of the Kalmthoutse Heide.  

You can stop over before/during or after a walk/bicycle tour for a refreshing cocktail, fizzy drink or a cool beer. On the menu you can find starter plates, sandwiches, salads or a bigger bite and delicious home made ice cream. 

note: This bar is only reachable by foot/bike, closed on Tuesday. As #closetonature as you can get!

The “Piknikfabrik”

Relaxing in nature… The PicnicFabrik (Picnic-Factory) delivers delicious picnics in one of the locations of your choosing. Even in the middle of the Kalmthoutse Heide!

The picnic is completely sealed so no one can get at it. You receive a secret code to open the packet. That makes it even more exciting.

Tip: You can order for a group starting at 8 people, 3 days in advance (depending on availability). It is possible to change or cancel the location 3 days in advance.
