Part of the Natura 2000 network, the plateau is a protected area and important for biodiversity. Escape out into nature to discover all kinds of butterflies and plants here. Fences protect recently planted trees, but other than that there’s hundreds of acres for you to wander.

  • Watch your step! the Plateau has some bogs. Those deep, muddy puddles can be a pain if you don’t watch your step.

  • Observation tower: the observation tower is a pretty tall, wooden tower - you can’t miss it. Get to the top for great views of nature

  • Natural vegetation: Rare and endangered plants grow around the plateau too like lingonberries. Either way, at the Plateau you're sure to see unique and hidden gems of nature in Belgium.
