What’s just around the riverbend? Ponds aplenty! See nature-packed views from the top of this watchtower.
When you think of De Wijers, you think of ponds. This place has the most ponds (Wijers to the locals) in Belgium. Literally 1,000+ ponds are here. How can you see them all? Simply get to the top of the tower in the Bolderdal pond area for a viewpoint. The 15m high water tower is the best spot in de Wijers to see all the nature it has to offer. A must-see while you’re walking, hiking and cycling around de Wijers to snap up photos of this pond-tastic area.
If heights aren’t your thing, then no worries. You can still see nature from the ground. De Wijers has plenty of viewing huts around. Pop in while taking a walk around the nature reserve and observe. Bird watchers have lots of different species to spot at de Wijers.
