Join in on this grounding experience of walking through nature barefoot!

At Visitor's-Centrum Lieteberg, you can use all of your senses to connect to nature and feel the textures of wood, stones, grass, clay and running water flowing through nature with you on a “Blotevoetenpad” (barefoot path). This active adventure awaiting you is for the young & the old in the Kempen forests of the Limburg province.

  • Cold and warm, water in motion and earth at rest, you will emerge yourself in a lively and fun activity with your friends or family. Super kid friendly.

  • For close to 3 km, this trail is only accessible barefoot, so be ready to let go, dig your feet in and be one with nature!

  • In this ultimate feeling of freedom you can find sand hills, steep slopes to climb and a wooden lookout tower, a maze and a suspension bridge. The kids will not be bored!

  • Worth a stop if you have the time, visit the nearby Vlinderpark Zutendaal (Butterfly museum) where you can see butterflies in their cozy habitat.
